I Quit My Job and Chased My Dreams

They say hindsight is 20/20, but let me tell you, staring down the prospect of quitting my stable job felt more like peering into a foggy abyss. "Are you crazy?" was the polite version of the reaction I got.

Fifteen Years of Preparation, One Terrifying Leap

The truth is, this "crazy" decision was over 15 years in the making. Sure, I'd tried (and failed) to chase my passion before. But each stumble taught me valuable lessons - what not to do, and most importantly, how to do it right.

So, yes, it was scary. But the fear was eclipsed by a potent mix of ambition and purpose. I knew I could offer something truly valuable: saving non-profits, propelling them forward, and witnessing their growth.

From One Fixer to a Whole Fixer Brigade

At my old job, I excelled at these things. Imagine the impact I could have helping multiple organizations, not just one! The potential to be a catalyst for a wave of non-profit success was intoxicating.

Sometimes, big scary steps lead to big, beautiful results. For me, the alternative was a lifetime of "what ifs?" Even if I failed, at least I wouldn't have regrets.

"I Wish" to "I AM": The Power of Starting

It's time to ditch the "I wish" and embrace the power of "I am." Start today, with one small step towards your purpose. This doesn't have to be a full-blown business.

Maybe you dream of tutoring children, or sharing your craft through workshops. Perhaps you yearn to belt out tunes with a band. Whatever it is, take that first step today. Every day is an opportunity to inch closer to your dream.

My Journey: 15 Years, Many Restarts, One Thriving Reality

My path wasn't a straight shot. It took 15 years, setbacks, relocations, and a supportive community to truly find my footing. But the key message is this: it's never too late to start.

So, what are you waiting for? Take a deep breath, chase your passion, and start making your dreams a reality!
