I am about to embark on the scariest thing in my entire working life. I need to resign from my part time job and work for myself 100%.
For the past 2 years I have had it pretty good, slipping under the radar and getting away with the bare minimum. I still look after my customers just like the other consultants, I never get customer complaints and never make major stuff ups. But management has recently changed and are questioning where my heart is – travel or business ownership.
I have often wondered over the past 20 months how things would be like if I gave it my all. If all my energy and focus was on Cat Napping.
I believe that the business would increase.
I would be able to get back to clients sooner than I do now.
On the other hand, I feel that I would get bored by the day-to-day running of Cat Napping after a few months. Having said that, I know this will just motivate me more to keeping searching for a second location. Unfortunately, my ideal warehouse, which I found a few blogs ago was leased while I was procrastinating over it.
None of the above is scary. The scary bit is the guaranteed monthly income that appears in my bank account will be no longer. I would be paying myself from my own bank account – my hard earned money. It feels a little foreign to me.
I know I will be a happier person when I stop working for the man. My fiancée can tell from my mood at home if I was at Cat Napping or the travel agent that day.
This is an enormous step into the unknown and I am definitely out of my comfort zone.
I need to keep reminding myself that I love change, I love what I am doing, and I will succeed.
