Who and what is an infogurl and how you can become one too?
My friends call me infogurl because I use mostly the internet to find information about well… everything. If I do not know when you ask, give me an hour, strong wifi signal and a phone. I promise you will know more than you ever wanted to about returning to college after 35. Infogurls are women who take charge of their lives by finding useful resources and advice that can help them change their lives by any means necessary. I say mostly using the net because many of my best resources are other people, books and experts. Did you know that only a small percentage of the world’s information can be found on google?
My goal is to provide you with the inspiration and information needed to empower your life. Translation?
I’m here to help you superhero style. Don’t worry I am not talking about leaping tall buildings and getting cats from trees.
Before we move on, let’s define superhero/heroine and why you want to be one too.
1. A being with extraordinary physical or mental powers, far beyond the range of normal human ability, who uses these powers to protect the innocent and for the general good.
1. A woman of distinguished courage or ability, admired for her brave deeds and noble qualities.
So basically, a kick ass chick who is brave and does stuff — capes are optional.
Who wouldn’t want to be one?
Yes, it takes a great deal of courage to be brave, dive into unchartered territory and try out the unknown. Don’t worry I will be here cheering you on the entire time, spoon feeding you bits of inspiration and information.
For years I lived my life according to some invisible set of rigid rules that made everyone else happy except me. Perfectionism, the need to be seen as a nice person, and saving my fellow woman ruled my life. And it wasn’t working out, in fact I was miserable inside. The day I started living my life on my terms was the best day of my life. A word of caution, it will not be easy, people in your life, the naysayers, the victims and negative nelly’s will all balk.
My mom use to say “no one is going to save you, baby. Prince Charming was delayed in another town, so save yourself”.
And so I did.
Stay tuned for information on how you can too!
