Welcome to The Renegade Rulebook.
A no bullshit approach to living a life that makes YOU proud.
I’m Carley — A high school English teacher, turned Digital Media Producer, turned NYC Publicist, turned Marketing Strategist, turned full-time Copywriter. SAY WHAT? I know. But writing was always my end game, and the path was not a straight, narrow, or easy one. if you’d like to learn more about my story, stick around long enough.
So here’s the deal with this Blog. There’s no formula, or sexy listicle, or downloadable e-book here. I’m not going to tell you what to do, or how to do it. I’m just here to openly share how I’m going about this wildly unpredictable life. I’ll be working with some really great people across a multitude of disciplines to shape the narrative of what it means to light a spark underneath passion and watch it catch fire. I’ll also be sharing my journey in a world that expects you to have, know, and be it all. (Pro tip — you can’t.)
Sometimes it gets messy. Sometimes it gets complicated. And sometimes (this is important) you’re going to screw the whole damn thing up and fall flat on your face.
You’ll be all, “WTF? HOW DID THAT EVEN HAPPEN?”
And I’ll be all, “It’s cool. Get up. You got this.”
And we’ll high five, because messing up is the risk you run for doing things differently.
-EVEN when it seems scary.
-EVEN when failure is likely.
-EVEN when people doubt you.
-ESPECIALLY if people doubt you.
(Because seriously, screw them.)
You have someone in your corner, fighting the good fight alongside you. So walk confidently in whichever direction your big heart calls you to. This community will have your back through all of your fears, failures, fuck ups, and most importantly, your feats.
Because those are the most fun.
I’ll see you out there, Renegades.
