Wake up at 6:50 am.
Quickly shower and get dressed, don’t even both blow drying my hair or putting on make up.
Jump in the car.
Sit through traffic on the freeway wasting precious time of my day.
Stop at Starbucks or at a doughnut shop and usually be 10-15 minutes late for work. (Okay so not really as we never really set a start time, but I usually started at 8 am.)
That USED to be my life. Driving to a job that I didn’t absolutely love and feeling like I was just following the herd. Just a little spawn in this thing called life.
I was doing what everyone expected of me. What everyone thought was normal.
But here’s the thing, I wasn’t happy.
You don’t want to spend the next few years like this. I know I didn’t!
And I get it (girl, do I ever!).
I now work from home! And have met so many amazing fellow online entrepreneurs who do the exact same thing as me.
We all had different reasons for starting down this path. Maybe we were looking to:
- Escape the corporate rat race and do work that is challenging and that we enjoy
- Find jobs that allowed us to work from anywhere and at anytime so we can work when we were most productive
- Discover flexibility so we could go to Disneyland during the day mid week when there is less of a crowd!
