Inspiration to start a business is everywhere. Perhaps you dabbled with a few ideas. You started to realize it's possible for you, but it would take some effort.
Then you go to work. It’s a paycheck. You used to love it. But now, it’s just dread. The work stress, team dynamics, lack of promotion, and don’t even get you started about your boss! Work life balance switched to work life integration...meaning 24/7. Yikes! You want to have a life!
The thought of quitting brings a huge sigh of relief! The freedom! The REAL schedule flexibility. Full creative license. Making a HUGE impact on what matters most to you. The freedom to work with people you love, doing what you love. The unlimited earning potential. It's the dream life!
Then fear sets in. Are you really willing to give up the steady paycheck, insurance and learn all the things? It's a blank slate...and a dark abyss at the same time. There are so many unknowns.
Sit back. Breathe. Let’s look at all the stuff to help you make the best decision for yourself.
