I have always believed in the saying “Don’t follow the path, blaze a trail…” I am living those words today like I never thought I would. After 5 years of my “Blaise the Baker” blog and everything that has went along with it, I am transforming my image and brand in ways I never thought possible. I have learned that things do not always work out the way you might think they would and I have learned some hard lessons about social media campaigns and what to do and what not to do. I am thankful for those experiences and I am thankful for what each of them have taught me.

Success is great and everyone has their own definition. Some people may think success means having a lot of money, a lot of fans, followers or subscribers. Some people define success in how many homes they have, cars they have available to drive or rings they wear. My definition of success means living the life you want to live on your own terms and your own set of rules.

Living honestly and with pride and dignity.

My new brand and new site “Trail Blaise” is about continuing my passions but on a new and different level.
