Envy would wash over me whenever I met entrepreneurs, business owners, and self-employers. Unfulfilled in my corporate job I would marvel at the strength, guts and brains I imagined it must take to build and sustain a business all on your own. I wanted that. That sense of pride, accomplishment and fulfillment.
But, they would say. It is hard to build a business! It takes a long time! You have to pay for your health insurance, retirement plan, and your own equipment! Yes! I would think. They are right. Never mind that my soul was withering away in a cubicle under fluorescent lights, I have direct deposit! But I could not quiet my entrepreneurial spirit. The job served me well, but I was longing to be free.
I took a leap of faith, and I began a step by step process of creating freedom in my life. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I was creating a foundation to build a business providing freedom for others.
