Starting The Desert Baroness blog is something that I’ve wanted to do and have dreamed about for a long time. Luckily, I’m at the point in my life now where I can pursue my dreams. So why am I talking about Steve Jobs on a food blog? Well…read on …
Back in 1987 I was living in the Silicon Valley and working for 3Com in Santa Clara for the big wigs of the company. Man, did I get to meet a lot of influential people! One of those influential people was Steve Jobs. Even back then, Steve Jobs (although not a chef – lol), made a huge impression on me. He will always be that person in my mind when I think about people who started from humble beginnings and made it to absolute greatness.
As I reflect on the “little things” I’m doing right now to start my blog, I remember those days back in 1987. I tell myself that if Steve Jobs did it, then I can do it! He had a dream and started Apple in his garage. I have a dream and I’m starting The Desert Baroness from a desk that was built in my son’s bedroom closet.
No, I won’t be the Steve Jobs of food blogs, but I am going to follow my dreams.
