Leaving My 9 to 5 Job To Start A Business


For as long as I can remember I have had a burning desire to be my own man. Now when I was younger, I didn’t quite know what that meant but what I did know is that I had a different mind set than most of the other kids and that was the start.

I was that rebellious kid that cut grass after school and sold candy to whomever that would buy it so when they say you have to have an entrepreneurial mind I definitely fit the mold. I really can’t say that I had any real influences that guided my thought process since I come from a working class family. I was always told that if you make it thru high school and then go to college then you could write your own ticket. Boy were they wrong in my case!

You see, something in me desired more than working and a 9 to 5 was not going to be my end all be all. Now if you ask anybody that knows me they would say that I have worked at every job imaginable taking bits and pieces of knowledge alone the way to use at a later date. Its thru this hard work and dedication that I learned persistent and determination and a willingness to succeed.

I thought it was strange that every job that i worked at, I quickly rose to a managerial position. When fate introduced me to my wife and future business partner it never deterred me for the plan of the goal and I made I abundantly clear up front this was the direction I was heading to in my life. Fortunately for me, my wife had the same desire and was just as driven as I was. 

All of this led up to the days that I started loosing my job and was unclear as to what the future held for me and my family. It was in this moment of uncertainty that I decided to leave the work force and become a full time entrepreneur taking all of my vast experience and us it create a legacy for my family and build generational wealth.

Most people get the opportunity to be great but fear and doubt prevents them from following their heart. You see, with the proper preparation, dedication and and solid plan you can achieve almost anything you put you mind to. True, leaving the comfort of a 9 to 5 job can seem risky especially if you are risk adverse, but it can also be very gratifying and rewarding. You business will only be as great as the amount of time and energy that you put into it so shoot for the stars.

I know I did.
