Why is it that some of us constantly wake up like clock work and toil in another man’s land, even when we don’t want to? How is it that we aid this stranger in building his empire, but don’t take the time/effort to invest in ourselves, our dreams? And this cycle repeats itself year after year, and at times, more often than not, we complain about how miserable are, and yet, no change is made. One person answered this question bluntly, “Everyone ain’t cut out to be a leader or entrepreneur…they are comfortable being a worker. It’s a safety net.” That hit me like a ton of bricks…I can’t imagine being a worker my whole life, especially knowing that I will never be able to live the life that I dream about every day.
I read an article that categorized people like me (entrepreneurs, millennials) as lazy, unproductive, self-obsessed and opportunistic. For someone who has had to work part of their high school years, through college, and thereafter, that is simply not true. One thing that was certain through my years of working, I was never happy. The payoff was never enough for me. Having someone set boundaries on how much money I make, what hours I work, when I could or couldn’t go on vacation, just never sat well with me. Upon entering my 30s, I decided to make a change and stop the cyclical cycle. Initially, for financial reasons of course, I would work by day and moonlight my passion at night until I could afford to transition out of corporate America for good.
Daily, I am bombarded with the notion that I was/am created to put out all this content and creativity and literally feel like I could suffocate if I keep it bottled up inside. No joke! That’s why I work hard daily to build my empire so that I don’t have to work for anyone else for the rest of my life. There are days I get scared and others where the uncertainty overwhelms me, but I choose to push forward. Frankly, if I had to go back to corporate America, I don’t know if I would be able to go on…
