Happiness is not in a title

Days like today are always filled with gratitude.

When I made the decision to walk away from my business almost three years ago, I had no idea the doors that would open up for me.

I was holding on so tightly to my identity as an entrepreneur that it was harming my finances, my mental health and worst of all my relationships.

Here’s the thing, sometimes the best thing you can do is quit. Sometimes you need to say ‘this isn’t serving me anymore’ and take the financial hit.

I held on to my business for a year after I should have let go because I was so worried about what people would think of me. I put myself in harms way because I feared the opinions of people I didn’t even know!

The same week I started to accept that I needed to walk away, I got a message from a friend at a local radio station about doing a remote for them. I did that remote shaking the entire four hours, and I loved every minute of it.

I realized that I didn’t have to have an important sounding title to be happy.

That experience solidified that I was going to walk away, pay the debt somehow else, and move forward.

I’m happier now than I ever was as an entrepreneur.

These days I show up without the impressive title, promote the heck out of someone, and then, I leave with a lime tree.
