I have a declaration to make…I’m quitting my job at the end of November. I have nothing lined up after that. All I know is that it’s time to start living my eulogy. No more promising myself that I will do it someday. I’m making steps to do it TODAY! My family, friends and co-workers think I’m nuts for leaving a good job without having another source of income lined up, especially in this economy. To add insult to injury, I have no savings whatsoever. With all that being said, it feels fantastic! A few days ago I actually smiled. It was a real, genuine smile. It felt so completely foreign that I immediately noticed the strangeness of it and the person I was smiling at noticed it as well. It’s pretty sad when you can’t even remember the last time you smiled, but that’s how life has been for me and I doubt I’m alone. I have a feeling a large number of people are in the same boat as me. I’m tired of getting dragged into workplace drama. I’m tired of working for little money just to make other people successful. I’m tired of having no time to work on my dreams because when I get home at night I’m too exhausted to move. I’ve finally gotten to the point where the abyss of the complete unknown looks more inviting than the status quo. And darn it, I’m excited. Even if I fail, at least I tried. The fear of failure has held me back for way too long.
Anyways…I’m actually writing to share good news. I’m going to be a Licensed Right-Brain Business Plan® Facilitator. I’m thrilled to be able to bring Jennifer Lee’s Right-Brain Business Plan® to creative entrepreneurs struggling to tackle the dreaded business planning process. I will let you know when and where I will host my first class.
