SHOW NOTES: Episode 98
We are chatting with Zhen Zou from Greedy Girl Gourmet, as she shares about how she downshifted from corporate career to full-time blogger. Zhen’s journey from the corporate world to blogging is a story of passion, persistence, and the power of community. It’s never too late to pursue your passion and success with blogging may not come quickly, but with hard work and the right mindset, it is achievable. She even shares some tips for you if you are looking to transition to full-time blogging.
Some of those tips that Zhen shared about downshifting to a full-time blogger:
- Make sure that you have more than you think is enough to make the downshift.
- Whatever change you make, it’s not permanent.
- Understand your personality before you make the change.
- Your life will change.
Whether you are currently in corporate and thinking about starting a blog or you already have a blog and thinking about making the downshift from corporate to that full-time blogger, this is an episode you are going to want to hear!
