On My Own

On November 6th at 4:43pm, I wrote the below in anticipation of this week's blog post:

It’s official. Our future is female. I had no doubt in my mind that this day would come in my lifetime. In fact, my best friend and I had dreams of being President and Vice President back in 1st grade. Never once did I think we were being far-fetched. Even in 1989 at the young of six, I knew girls were capable of anything.

This view of the world combined with hard work and dedication, a desire to speak my own mind and make my own way has led me to a very special place in my life.

Today, I’m beyond excited to share with you my new website, JamieSylves.com. I’ve decided to take the biggest risk of all and go out on my own. And I couldn’t have made this happen without the support of my family, especially my mom for reminding me that I’ve always landed on my feet, and my husband who is my greatest champion. It’s because of my incredible network of friends that pick me up when I’m down and the bright, intelligent women who have mentored me throughout my career that I’m as confident than ever before. The encouragement has been overwhelming and I’m forever grateful for your advice along the way.

This new chapter of my life has already been blessed with amazing experiences and the journey has just begun!


We all thought this, right? To say that my confidence has been shaken is an understatement. The uplifting texts and articles like this one from my Mom are helping. I don't know what I'd do without her during this sad time, but we have to move forward and support each other. 

If you have a second, please take a peek at my new site. Pass along if you can. Also take note of the icons - I DREW THEM! Who knew I had this skill?
