In the past few days, little things have been coming in that would kickstart what I’ve been working on since the new year started. I’ve also been in the process of looking for employment.
And of course with all these things, I’ve felt doubt. I am unsure of whether to take that leap that is necessary in both. There is so much risk involved, so much to lose and so much to gain. I am so scared. I don’t want to fail, but I also know that I am capable of self-destruction.
Every feeling in my body says to keep going on the business, to stop trying to find work and just keep plugging away at making recipes and finding out more about making a business plan and getting the funds necessary to get the ball rolling.
But again, I AM SO SCARED. I don’t want to fail. But anything worth having has risk right?
Dude. I think you should read “$100 Startup.” I was listening to a business podcast and they talked about it. It’s about going for it with what you have. Can’t open a shop? Well, find a way to sell online. I know you dont want to deal with dry ice, but if it makes you money, then I think you’ll learn to love it. Or at least tolerate it.
You can still follow your dream while holding down a “day job.” It’s just time management. Trust. It’s not going to be easy, but you want it? You go for it. You can do it too. I know. You know how I know? Because you told me it feels right. You told me it makes you happy. You told me you want it. You’ve changed. This is changing your life for the better and you just need to keep putting one foot in front of the other and move forward. I know it’s hard. Dear God, I KNOW how hard it is. But, it will happen.
As for failing… fall down 7 times, stand up 8.
