"What's the opportunity here?" This is the question I've been asking myself, my team, and the Empowered Hustle community when chatting with people who are feeling uncertain, unsure, and anxious about things right now, myself included.
Today reminds me when I quit my job back in 2012 to go out on my own as a freelance writer. I had about 2 weeks worth of savings and 5 clients at the time. Within a month of quitting my job, my husband was laid off from his lucrative day job... it was a flight or fight moment. Looking back, I remember feeling the pull to go back to my full-time job, but resisting that pull through sheer will and determination to create a life I loved. To have time freedom to do what I love. To enjoy what I'm doing day in and day out.
I focused on my desire to make an impact and help others. I was open to opportunity. And I'm still focused and open now.
I'm still scared, but I'm aware of that and so before I make a decision, I make sure to do a quick gut check to make sure I'm not basing it on fear.
I hope these resources, and everything else we have available on this website, will help you right now. We're here for you. You got this.
