Hey – I’m Lizzie. I’m the creator of The Fearless Gamer Chick and I’m here to tell you more about the metaphysical side of your life. Are you ready?
My story begins on a seemingly normal day in March 2016. I am finishing a week out at my corporate job and am leaving through the front door of the building.
There’s a problem with that scene description, though. This was my last day at the place for good. I had quit two weeks previously because of the amount of stress on my shoulders.
I am 25 and a half years old at this time and am struggling with a diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder. The disorder runs in my family so it came as no surprise to anyone at this point.
I knew I needed to do something that would ease the anxiety to a more manageable level. The anxiety had led to a lot of physical side-effects for me by this point as well without my realizing it.
My solution to the problem? Go back to working for my mom, who owned a small business of her own. (This business closed its doors in December 2017.) I thought this would solve the problem for me but not so much, unfortunately.
After a misunderstanding with a co-worker in August 2016 that led to a few tears on my end, I decided I deserve more than the disrespect the co-worker gave me that day. That is why I decided to leave this job as well.
Truth is, I didn’t have a concrete game plan for what I was going to do after leaving my job with my mom. All I knew was that I wanted to create a writing business on my terms.
I wanted to create an empire after realizing that a corporate job just wasn’t going to work out for this chick. I went out of my way to make sure I’d never have to go back to that again.
The truth is, I’ve gone back to working for my mom three times because my empire didn’t build itself up to my liking. I was floundering like nobody’s business because I didn’t know what I was doing.
I had been given the tools necessary to create my empire but I didn’t take action. That’s because a “typical” freelance writing business wasn’t what I was meant to create.
It took me FAR too long to figure out but I now realize that this new empire is what I was meant for, folks. It took me a year and a half, loads of business iterations including a marketing coach stint, and a mental breakdown in February 2018 to realize this.
So let me introduce you to The Fearless Gamer Chick. I’m sure you’ll enjoy what you’ll find here – let me know if I can help you. I can’t wait to hear from ya!
