22 Nov Venturing Out

When you google the word Venture you get the following:

Venture (verb) to undertake a risky or daring journey or course of action
Venture (noun) a risky or daring journey or undertaking
Venture (verb) to undertake a risky or daring journey or course of action
Venture (verb) she dared to do or say something that may be considered audacious (often used as a polite expression of hesitation or apology)

Mini Ventures is my new blog.  My new place to document what some might think is a risky or daring journey or undertaking. It is being written because I have decided to leave my well paid, secure job as a lawyer; a job which I have been doing for the last 15 years, for a life which has much more of a focus on my home, my children, consultancy, blogging and on the next big thing for me.

What I have learnt over the last few years is that something else will happen. You don’t have to worry, what will come next, something always turns up and it will often be something you have never expected.

Less than two years ago I would never have expected to have an award winning travel blog. I love writing Mini Travellers and to think two years ago I don’t even think I knew blogs existed.  This next step in my life will undoubtedly bring something else. My blog has already brought me fabulous new friends, wonderful holidays, exciting experiences for my children that money doesn’t buy and a belief in the fact that you can change your life if you want it to happen.

So for me Mini Ventures is the next step. I intend to venture out in to the blizzard (or the next stage of my life anyway) and do something that some may consider audacious, but that I consider exciting and I for one can’t wait!
