It took getting fired from a well paying corporate job, to turn this side business into a full time business. After the HR call, a lot of worry and emotions set in. Thoughts about the phone call with my wife, insurance, monthly paycheck, the kids, etc. After a few phone calls and some encouragement from friends and family the calmness began to set in. We had savings, no debt, and we already had a part time business that was growing and we could focus on it Monday through Friday.
One door closes and another one opens is a popular phrase and it’s true! I never would have quit that corporate job, but since that terrible day and pride shattering moment...we have been blow away by what we’ve experienced since. Experiences we never would have enjoyed as an employee, like working in 8 different International countries, all over the nation, and meeting amazing clients/friends.
We have been humbled by the freedom of being self employed. Self employment has its challenges and it’s not for everyone, but we love it because of the time we get to spend together and with our kiddos.
In 2018, a dream of mine came true. We opened an office!
