Meet a Friend - Raj!

Do y'all want to know something amazing? Today is my very last Monday EVER at the law office! Next Monday, I'll officially be doing teachery stuff. Okay, to be honest, I've been doing teachery stuff off and on since I began this career changing journey. And more "on" than "off," since finding out that I got the job I wanted!  Anyways, it is a very happy Monday, indeed.  

On that note, I'd like to introduce you to the lovely Raj of Take it away, Raj!

Hello everyone I'm Raj from Pink Chai Style, and I'm thrilled to be visiting Have Breakfast with Tiffany today. When I sat down to write my post I was pretty stumped because writing about myself isn't really my favorite topic. So, I've decided to share a little background into my journey as a hobby blogger to an almost professional blogger in the hope that it might inspire or motivate some of the readers here to chase their big dreams too!

Pink Chai Style is a personal style blog that I started about a year and a half ago to get out a fashion funk. We were going through a big transition period in our life, had recently moved, and I was sort of unhappy with where I was at in my career - so I decided to take a picture of what I wear everyday and post it on the internet. There is no better way to force yourself out of your pajamas and into something nice (trust me).

After about 8 moths of posting pictures I realized what a phenomenal difference the blog was making in my life; my confidence was growing, my style was evolving, and most importantly, it re-connected me with my love of writing. Once I became dedicated to improving my photos and posting daily, the magic really started to happen!  I connected with a community of bloggers that were supportive and helping each other grow, got some freelance writing opportunities, and even saw positive impacts on my marketing business.

The biggest lesson that has come to me from blogging is; if you put yourself out there with  positive intent day after day, amazing things will happen. By letting my creative juices flow and really starting to write from the heart I've been able to attract work opportunities and paid writing jobs, something I couldn't even have dreamt of two years ago. The blog also gave me an excuse to start sewing again and a platform for showing off my work. Those many afternoons spent sewing have inspired me to go back to school this fall and start studying for my degree in Fashion Technology and Design, another lost dream that I had pretty much given up on before starting Pink Chai Style. Everyday I'm grateful for that random idea to start a blog that started this journey.

So that's the story of how my little blog has helped me grow so much in just one year! I'd love for you to leave a comment, and stop by and visit me on my blog where I share tips and tricks on stretching your current wardrobe, shopping your closet, and looking fabulous while chasing after your little ones! And thanks once again to Tiffany for introducing me to her wonderful readers.
