‘Imagine You’ is a Reality

Imagine You… 

I’ve spent the last couple of months working on something. Something I’m extremely passionate about – that’s sort of been in the works for a few years.

Ever since I left my job in accounts almost 3 years ago and took the plunge to become a full time freelance writer, I’ve had an overwhelming urge to just do more than simply write.

I think I’ve always been that way, which is why my CV is full of what recruiters like to refer to as “job hopping.” (Not necessarily a bad thing in my opinion – but that’s another topic for another day).

It’s Done!

If you’ve been following this blog, you’ll know that I’ve been dropping hints every so often about what’s to come. Well, today is launch day – my little project is now live and naked for the entire world to see.

I’m so thrilled and proud of the end result.

And to think that it all started six months ago with an idea I had walking along the beach.

Something I first thought I should wait a year on. But you know, the more I thought about it and read up things online, the more I realised that there just isn’t any point to waiting. Life is too short. I say this all the time, and as it turns out – so do some of my entrepreneur idols, like Steve Jobs and Richard Branson. So I went for it.

I have big plans for this website – I had to cut back on quite a few ideas to get it up, so I’m just going to have fun with it and have faith for the future.

That doesn’t mean I’m quitting my writing job. I’m a dreamer, but these last two years (and my husband) have slowly taught me how to be a dreamer with my feet on the ground. I’ve started to realise the importance of being realistic – following your heart, but using your head too. 

Pop in and Park off

The idea of Imagine You is a central place for people to come and get inspired. To feel motivated. The topics I’ve chosen have to do with happiness, health, calm and zen, feel-good karma, body, and inspiration.

I’ll also be adding a forum onto the website in the next few weeks because that’s another big part of all of this. I want this site to feel a little more personalised than your average online magazine site. So it’s a space to come and feel supported – or offer support, and chat as well.

  3. A huge moment and accomplishment for you, and I congratulate you, Mel. I know how much you want this, and your hopes for it, so bravo. Now…and I’m serious here…be patient. Success does not happen simply because you want it to happen. Continue to work…grow a fan base…take a deep breath…and savor the moment. Well done my friend.

      Thanks Janine 🙂 Yes, lots of overtime on weekends to get this thing up and the way I wanted it. But it wasn’t really work – it was fun. Now the REAL work starts.
