I had a full time job and a side business, that was ok... but what I really wanted was to leave my day job and make the business work as a main hustle. It brought in some income but because I wasn't passionate about that business, I couldn't grow it. I wanted to start something else but what was that going to be and how do I make that kind of change at this time in my life?
Listen, I was already a grown woman with a job, a husband, a child and responsibilities. At the time, I felt scared about starting over, I felt like everyone else knew more than me, nobody would buy this new thing and I couldn't afford to make that kind of mistake.
I also couldn't just give up my dream of being a successful entrepreneur.
Having the freedom to travel whenever I want and spend time with my family isn't a dream. My parents lived that way. I wanted that for my family. I wanted to be home when my son got back from school. I wanted to drive him to karate. I don't think that is too much to ask.
I also was more than fed up with my long, long, long commute to work. I was completely over it!
