I was hanging out with some friends I hadn’t talked to in awhile and mentioned to them I had left my job and was starting a business.
Their response shocked me because usually when you tell family and friends news like this they usually get wild eyed and sometimes brush over it like you just gave the code word for I just lost my job and I don’t know what Im going to do, because they think the next thing thats coming is can you help me?
What’s surprised me then and more and more as I meet new people is that they are interested in my motivation. What made me leave my job? You know my nice paying, respectable, stable position with so much potential.
