As many of you know, I’ve been wearing two hats in my work life since the first of the year. By day, I’ve been working for a large corporation. In the evenings, and on my days off, I’ve been pursuing my passion as a writer. I’ve built my business to the extent that time allowed.
The full-time job that I’ve worked at for almost 11 years ended today when my position was eliminated. I was one of many that were affected. I’m a firm believer that everything always works out the way it’s supposed to. I’ve been through some stuff in my life that wasn’t fun and didn’t feel good. But, I’ve always seemed to make a comeback. That whole phoenix thing.
So… I now have more time to promote and work my business. 50 hours a week more. I called this blog “Working Without a Net” because that’s how it feels. Exhilarating and scary in equal parts. There are a lot of things I couldn’t do to grow and work my business. Now I will.
I’ve met a lot of good people at my job, and will keep a lot of friends in my new life. I’ve learned so much in the past 10 years, and the experience has helped prepare me for this moment.
I don’t have any hard feelings. I’m feeling bad tonight for all the people who depended on their job to house and feed their family. It’s a shame that this had to happen today.
It’s amazing how your life can change in one day…
