Grabbing Life by the Ba- urm- Horns!

Well, if you hadn’t head through Facebook, I have become the very person I used to be jealous of. Yes, I quit my 40 hour a week job and have revved into full gear as a (remote) freelance writer/social media specialist for Curly Q Media (and part time server in downtown and Zirtual Assistant.) 28. Up to my ears in student loan debts. No 401(k), no benefits (unless I buy them) and no bi-weekly paycheck with my taxes neatly pulled courtesy of Human Resources. Some people would say that I was stupid– frankly, I can’t really argue that fact. I have no business background, I was making stupid money for an easy job (where I was very unhappy) and I have an iron clad lease for which I owe rent through February. Oh, I also have a long distance relationship- we fly about 2000 miles each way once a month- gets pricey. It’s enough to make you vomit a little in your mouth- actually; I did when I reread all of this.

It’s funny, but I have equal moments of excitement and terror…outweighed by only one overwhelming thought: I am an entrepreneur. I am my own boss. I did it. I had the guts to follow my dream even though it could possibly lead to financial ruin. You know what, though? Worst case scenario, I have to get another 40 hour per week job because my gamble doesn’t pay off. I can admit to failure- hell, I fail all the time. I even blog about it. You know what I can’t do? I can’t live life with my tail between my legs. I can’t blow off possibility. I can’t keep shoving my dreams off until tomorrow. If I die this afternoon in some freak accident (because in my opinion, that’s the only way for it to go down), I want people to read this blog and know that I DIED HAPPY. Thrilled, even. Life is TOO SHORT to wait for tomorrow- so I’m getting it done today. Join me!
