Show Notes

“I think it’s important to A) allow your dreams to evolve and B) understand that you can give yourself grace and you can also experiment.”

- Pauleanna Reid


We all want to make a living working our Dream Job… but what do you do when your dream job doesn’t exist yet?


In this episode, I talk to a From Bustle to Boss success story! Pauleanna Reid is a journalist and the founder and CEO of WritersBlok, a ghostwriting agency that helps creative thinkers develop their voices and decode their ideas so that when they speak up, they SHAKE the room! 


Pauleanna is definitely a MEANTrepreneur, not a WANTrepreneur. In order to become a boss, Pauleanna first needed to define her dream job… and when she found out it didn’t exist yet, she built it herself. 


As Pauleanna says, Success leaves clues… and if you’re not paying attention, you’re going to miss your moment! Press play now to hear our entire conversation — we talk about it all, including: 

  • How Pauleanna stayed true to her values even while still working in the corporate world 
  • Pauleanna’s first steps for successfully bringing her Dream Job into reality
  • What helped Pauleanna overcome her biggest obstacles and employee mindset while building up her business


You won’t want to miss it!
