And away we go… I’ve been building for nearly two years to reach this point. And so it begins.
James Altucher and others talk about quitting your job all the time, and I finally did it. I ran into a friend at the Davis Farmer’s Market over the weekend. About a year ago, he left his day job to be a full-time flight instructor. He had a newborn baby girl at the time. He asked what the decision was like for me. I told him – “You know, there wasn’t a cosmic event where all the sudden you now see the 4th dimension.”
He laughed – “Yeah, you’re standing there waiting, waiting, waiting to make the jump, and then you do and realize the water is only ankle-deep.”
That’s about right. Already today, at 7am, a time when I used to be listening in on a sales pipeline conference call with a sales team based in Washington DC is instead filled with coordination emails around my website redesign, planning a SalesBarCamp, and planning out the rest of the week.
It’s here, and I’m in it, hiding the stress under building my business, and confident that somehow, someway, I’m going to make this work.
