Why is this my first post?
First, I love this quote. It is so simple, but I think it is true. If you believe you can do something, no matter how crazy, you can.
This phrase is also what helped inspire the name of the blog. I want to create a blog that embodies both strength and an adventurous spirit, a belief that you can do anything if you just “go” or “believe.” That is what I am doing here in Boulder. I moved here without a job… just a goal. And as of now I still have no job, so feel free to contact me with any offers! 🙂
While I originally thought I would move here and make my second attempt at starting a company, I am choosing to find a job at a startup in operations or marketing to gain more experience.

So many lifestyle blogs and personal blogs that I follow are those of mothers and wives who live a life I don’t connect with yet. I want to have a blog where we can empower each other to chase dreams during this independent stage in life. I To believe we can and to do it. Just go. Follow your instinct, your gut, your heart, or whatever its leading you and TRY. So she goes because she can. Because she believes in herself and her potential to change the world.1
