Business Services: Support, Tools & The Space for You to Grow Your Business.
Ah... the tres glamorous life of an Entrepreneur!! Manage your own schedule, sleep in, afternoon golfing, and vacations, whenever you want them! Sound about right? NOTTTT!!
FACT! Operating your own business is challenging and not for the faint of heart.
It takes a lot of drive, passion, vision, dedication and skills to build and sustain a successful business. Unfortunately there are a precious few who innately have the full package. The rest of us muddle our way through these tasks... but what if we didn't have to?
Some of us have an INNER KNOWING that we were meant to do something MORE. After years of denying it, and eventually illness, we take the leap - doing things like leaving a corporate job behind. Friends and family thought you were NUTS!
You left a job with secure income and for what? The uncertainty of self-employment? An idea that wasn't completely formed yet? What happens if this? What happens if that?
You ignored the nay-sayers and went about your merry way.
What you realized when you eventually started "the journey" was that going to work did have some perks that you maybe took for granted.
People. To greet good morning. To share your weekend plans. Your worries and challenges. To have lunch with. As an entrepreneur... it can feel VERY isolating.
Social Time. Happy hours. Work gatherings. Even if it is only occasional. These work colleagues become your tribe of people, often knowing more about your life than your closest friends.
The dollar bills ya'll! Yes, you have disposed of your regular income! This is a huge impact to your life.
This may leave you some days reflecting badly on your decision... shake your head... IT'S ALL WORTH IT RIGHT?!
Freedom. Making a real difference. Growth. Of course it's worth it!!
Trust your soul... you're on the right track!
