Today I am sharing a short story I recently wrote for my friend Marie and her website, www.livelikeitmatters.net called "What do you want to be when you grow up?" In today's podcast, I share a few excerpts from a book I am working on called "Reinventing Wendy." Perhaps a few of you 80s kids can relate and I hope I am able to make you smile and recognize maybe a little bit of yourself in my story.As an extra-extrovert, I never expected to live a quiet life. Far from it. As a serial #entrepreneur, and a #militaryspouse of over 26 years our lives are constantly changing. This life is not for everyone, but for me, I wouldn't have it anyway. So what do you want to be when you grow up? Who says you have to pick just one thing!Marie's blog is filled with inspiration and challenges us to live like it matters because it does. Check it out. www.livelikeitmatters.net- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -This podcast is brought to you by ©Travel with Wendy who is a hospitality small business coach.
