I’ve always been a little lost. I never knew exactly what direction to take my life.
Silly hobbies that I hoped to make into a business.
But, nothing has ever stuck.
I’ve complained numerous times, both on my blog and in real life, that I haven’t found myself.
I’ve lamented that, while I ADORE being a mom and a wife (sometimes), it’s just not as fulfilling as I’d like it to be.
I had no true sense of self. No real identity other than how others defined me.
A mom. A wife. A sister. A friend.
And a blogger.
I lost sight of ME.
My mom swore that someday, whatever it was that I was searching so hard for, would fall into my lap. It happened to her, it was how she found her career as an antique jewelry dealer.
She promised that when I wasn’t looking, it would happen. But, she said that about a lot of things and I never believed her (even though she was usually right!)
Into my lap is a complete understatement.
It SLAMMED itself into my chest and knocked me over.
It’s funny how things happen like that.
It’s always shocking when my mom is actually right.
Through Twitter, I met another local blogger. Nicole, The Sale Rack. Somehow, we became friends on Twitter.
Now, we are friends in real life.
I’m not sure how it happened but, we’ve started a little business.
Social Media…of course. It just fits, right?
Our website is being developed right now.
We actually are starting to become busy with clients that are putting their trust in us to do a good job being their social media.
Which, c’mon, it’s a no brainer. With both of us on the job, these companies are going to be the talk of the internet. Hopefully we won’t ruin their reputations by being too talkative.
Barrett and Brodsky Media, LLC has been born.
Where being social is our business. And our tag-line. Thank you very much 🙂
I’m so excited because I have FINALLY found a career that I love.
I can harness my addictive personality traits into productive uses.
And my new partner is someone that is becoming a good friend.
It’s amazing how, when you find that missing piece that you’ve been looking for for SO LONG, how your life begins to fall into place.
I am so stinking excited that I can hardly contain it.
I’m driving my husband and kids crazy.
I’m probably driving Nicole crazy too because I’m constantly calling her and squealing or bouncing ideas off on her.
What’s cool is, we have a different approach to social media than a lot of companies. I’m not disclosing here, it’s for clients to know and you to find out *wink*.

Our website will be coming soon.
Along with all our other little social media thingamabobbers.
I can’t believe that this is a job. That there is a paycheck. Because…I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
I am SO LUCKY!
