What’s Old is New Again

Okay….now I’m nervous. I just took an assignment doing something I haven’t done in years (many, many years). I’m writing about business and money. That’s how I started out my career—as a business reporter and editor. I had no idea what I was doing; I just bluffed my way through it until I did. Same thing when I switched to women’s magazines, but at least that was an area I had some personal experience in. So here I am, at 47, in a place that’s both familiar and scarily new. It’s been a while since I felt this way. I kind of like it.

If you’re embarking on a new venture, or dusting off an old skill, tell me about it. We can cheer each other on.
