Like many of my readers, I have worked very hard my whole life. I moved out of my mom’s house at the young age of 16 (not by my choice) but that is another story. I lived with friends for a while and then ended up living in a homeless shelter for a few months. I saw a lot of sad things during that time. I wanted to Be Bold and live Bold. I took the Bold step and I went to nursing school and let me tell you it was not easy. I worked hard to get my degree with two kids at home.I worked nights and weekends while my kids were young. I worked a lot of overtime just to make sure my kids had everything they needed. I worked in the medical field for 23 years and I knew it was time for a change. I worked so hard my whole life and I was getting nowhere living paycheck to paycheck and struggling. I decided to Be Bold and invest in myself. I started out with a small Facebook page about coupons. I worked on my own site after work and on weekends. Soon my work and dedication to my blog started paying off. I decided to take a big risk to leave my day job and focus on running my own business. People thought I was completely insane. I knew I had to Be Bold and Live Bold.
That was 4 years ago. I believe you should be bold, live bold and drink bold. I also drink bold coffee. I love that I made the decision to stay home and work be my own boss. I wake up brew my Dunkin’ Dark® sit in my pj’s and work. Dunkin’ Dark® coffee is Brewed for the Bold – coffee lovers who aren’t afraid to take risks and make bold moves.
