Ok, I’m on a roll.
I have a dear friend that about 7 years quit her full time, well paying job to start her own business. She was and still is optimistic that it’s going to take of but 7 years later it still has not taken off. She’s spent all her money. She’s lost her home. She has a ton of inventory and very few jobs. Every month is a huge challenge for her. And I worry about her all of the time.
Don’t get me wrong. Corporate life is not for everyone. I did it because I felt I had responsibilities. And I don’t do well without security. That comes from watching my grandparents have nothing and live on a pittance from Social Security. It would have been disastrous without their kids. And my friend was miserable. In some ways, I admire her for going for it and following her dream. And in other ways I worry about her all of the time.
She seems fine with everything. I’m the one with the issues.
I hope for huge success in her future.
