My boss recently approached me and said something to me that made me realize that we are more alike than I originally thought. She told me to go into business for myself. She said that she doesn’t want me to wake up in 20 years and wish I had.
It was like she read my mind. I have been thinking about this a lot lately. When I first graduated college, I thought all I wanted was to get a good job with great benefits in a cubicle somewhere. After teaching for 3 months (more on my teaching experience later), I thought I found what was the job of my dreams. Don’t get me wrong, I work for a wonderful organization and I feel that I am paid fairly and the benefits are awesome! After being at my job for almost 4 months, I realized I was way off.
I find myself day dreaming about my hobbies, which realistically could provide an income comparable to what I have now if I wanted them to. So that is my current goal: figure out how to turn my hobbies into a business so I can do what I love, not what I have to do.
Have you thought about this, or better yet, done this? I would love to hear your thoughts on this!
