I did this change for two reasons:
- 1. I found out, through a google search, that there is already an "Unemployed Entrepreneur" in existence. Much success to them and their endeavors, but I don't like to be like everyone else, so a name change had to happen and fast. Unfortunately, I'll have to slowly phase out the original link address until all of the 250 business cards I recently purchased at Vistaprint are finished (I'm so ambitious).
- 2. I'm going to start changing my thinking and my outlook on life. I'm not just an unemployed entrepreneur. Through starting my own business in a down economy and remaining focused and optimistic while searching for that part-time or full-time job, I'm empowering myself and my future. Plus the purpose/ goal of this blog is to empower and inspire readers to go forth and realize their dreams.
What did I learn from this? Do your research and roll with the punches. You live and you learn and then you get better.
So there you have it. I'm making a change for the better. Not just for the blog which is only a couple weeks old now, but also for myself and for you, the reader.
