HOW KAYLAMARILYN.COM ORIGINATED
The first twenty years of life are laid out for you. Go to school to get good grades. Get good grades to go to college. Graduate from college to get a good job. Then what?
I thought I’d have it all figured out by the time I walked the stage at commencement. Twenty-three was going to be the year I had it all together. After all, I signed a job offer with a Fortune 500 company. I signed a lease for an apartment with my new friend from school. I made my first big girl purchase on a sparkly new car. This year was supposed to be easy. I put in the work to get here and now all I had to do was live it.
I couldn’t have been more wrong. Everything changed; friendships, relationships, acquaintances, tastes, comfort zones, support systems, and interests. Several of my best friends moved away, one across the country and another, across the globe. I said a lot of “hellos” and just as many “goodbyes”. I explored new opportunities while denying others. I found the things I worked so hard to achieve, weren’t any of the things I actually wanted present day. While I had it all, I still felt so incredibly lost.
Three years later I am here to be a resource to you for all things lifestyle, career + finance, and personal development. While I do not have all the answers I have plenty of lessons learned to share!
Kayla is a 25-year-old small town girl living in the city, obsessed with all things creative! She’s a sales and marketing specialist by day, and blogger by night. After graduating from University, Kayla was at a complete loss for what she wanted out of life. Three years later she created KaylaMarilyn.com as a resource for other women going through similar experiences.
Kayla is excited to share her journey and insights through her twenties with you, in hopes that you may relate to her and find comfort in knowing that you’re not alone in this little thing called life!
