Eileen Higgins is Eyes on My World
Things I’m Thinking About
I’m Eileen Higgins. Welcome to my blog. What you’ll find here are musings about what I’m thinking about, reading about, wondering about, and wish I knew more about. Lots of it is about Miami and Miami-Dade County because this is my home and I love it. I think about where I live a lot because I believe it can be the best place on earth with a few tweaks. I think a lot about poverty, friendship, justice, freedom, how lucky I am to live here, and how we live, work, and commute together.
Warning: You will sometimes be subjected to some nutty musings or videos about books I’m reading. My equally nuttier family often directs or stars in them.
A Little Bit About Me
I’m a long-time business professional who started out working for numerous large companies in engineering, new product development, and finally marketing. Since the early 2000s, I began to carve out more and more time to advocate for issues that affected the communities I lived in. I liked giving back enough that I sought out work for the Peace Corps and was blessed to live in Belize and then also in Mexico working for our Ambassador particularly on programs designed to reduce violence. Now I’m a small business owner with my sister and dad and have my own digital marketing business, but I haven’t stopped trying to spend a good chunk of my personal time advocating for issues that I think matter.
When poet Mary Oliver asks me “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” I hope to be able to say “Everything.”
