I am overjoyed by the impact of Prolific Living in the community starting in 2010. You build something and may not quite believe that it will grow until it does. So remember to build something and to always give it your all!
It has been beyond humbling to see Prolific Living having such an impact worthy of such kind praise. Here are some of the big shout-outs to Prolific Living:
On March 17th, 2012, I was a guest on BBC World Service Radio, segment with presenter and host, Julian Marshall, where we discussed the smart exit strategies of quitting your corporate job. The style and manner with which I had quit my job had brought some attention to the BBC and they honored me with this interview.
On June, 2011, I was featured in Forbes titled “The Realistic Road to Entrepreneurship”. It talked about the why behind my resignation from my lucrative 11-year Corporate job to build my own business.
I was honored to be named among 125 Fearless Female Bloggers in one of the top social media blogs, Kikolani .
Prolific Living was among the Top 40 Bloggers to Watch in 2011 in the top blog for pro bloggers, Problogger.
And stoked to have Prolific Living Page showcased on Chris Brogan’s Compelling Fan Pages.
