Recently I made the decision to leave my secure, full-time job to peruse my passion.
Why you might ask…………
For me, the road that I was going down was not doing the following things for me-
- Giving me any joy
- Developing me
- It was going in a direction that I did not like.
Over the course of Leamington Hour, I have always gone out of my way to help people. I want to feel that I am making a difference in their lives, community projects or businesses so I had two options:
- Find another full-time job.
- Find a part time job and work on helping people and build my business.
Both are risky but I have gone for option 2 as I could always go back to option 1 if needed.
I couldn’t make this decision without the support of my partner, family and network and I know it will make me happier in the long run. This is a decision that some people will be thinking about or have done in the past. If you have done it then you are amazing and an inspiration to me.
I am now following my passion and helping people learn and develop their skills on social media. I am cycling and helping more community projects which I love! I also have more control and freedom and I know that the next few months are going to be exciting and scary but it will be the start of something special!
If you have made the jump and started your own business, I want to know! I would love to interview you for my radio show on Radio Warwickshire to inspire more people to follow their passion.
