So I have been on the WA site now for a few days trying to get use to it. I have worked for the same company for 24 years. Only full time job I ever had. I am a hard worker and a natural leader and spent 22 years in management. Now I wouldn't say I was fulfilled or extremely happy but I was good at what I did but I have always wanted to work for myself or better just rely on myself and my work ethic. The company has been great too me and I have been blessed to meet so many good people but I was burning out. About 6 years ago I started selling on line and it has been very rewarding and has enabled me to step down from management to an hourly position which I did about 2 years ago and it has been great. But.... I would like to leave the work force all together and work for myself.
Growing up we are taught or at least I was that you go to school get a good job work hard raise a family and retire. That is what I have done it seems. I have a beautiful family 3 dogs a lizard a fish and a rodent ( my daughters Ginny pig)! But why do I have to stay at a JOB? Why can't I work for myself and still provide for my family? Fear? Change? Probably a bit of both. This is the first blog I have ever written in my life. I am not to technical. I have been able to run a small business on line so I guess that is good progress.
I was pretty excited to stumble on this site. I was doing well until I got to the Niche pick part of the training. I am probably over analyzing it too much. But why not? Why can't I do this?
I just wanted to get this down on paper I feel sometimes by writing I can work through my thoughts better. Any advice would be appreciated. This community is real I can see that everyone has been very welcoming. Thank you
