“WHEN YOU TAKE RISKS YOU LEARN THAT THERE WILL BE TIMES WHEN YOU SUCCEED AND THERE WILL BE TIMES WHEN YOU FAIL, AND BOTH ARE EQUALLY IMPORTANT.” – ELLEN DEGENERES
Hi, I’m Kate! And I’m on a mission to reflect upon failing to succeed. Some call it failing up. Others say keep failing until you don’t….I’m not sure you can live a life without failure – so why not embrace it and ask for it on the side!
When I order a salad with “dressing on the side,” it’s sometimes because I am not sure how much or how little I want to distribute on my veggies until after I have a taste….This blog is similar, it’s a little something on the side.
This blog puts me out there, taking a few personal risks, with the purpose to find a way to fund my love for food & travel, as well as, to dump my debt & save for later. This blog will share that journey… as I shed light on my failures and provide insights about dumping debt and melting away thirteen years of baby fat!! Oh, and I am also aiming to uncover time to dedicate to my love for photography?!
On the Side with Kate Shively is my way of documenting my pursuit to live my best life, happily, while standing tall with some creative entrepreneurship on the side.
Full disclosure, I am making this blog purposefully to hold myself accountable AND perhaps bring together others who may share in similar struggles. Reach out and let me know you are there – we can cheer and coach each other! #dumpthedebt #ontheside #byebyestudentloans #standtall #ketowithkate
