I’m so ready to break free from corporate life. My only hesitation is financial stability.
One of my friends has renamed my journey out of the rat race to “Operation Florida”. She broke free from the rat race a year ago and has been searching for a job since, but from her new home in Orlando, FL. Her husband took his job with him and works from home with his company based in Cincinnati. I am trying to figure out how to do something like that. Then again, I just want out entirely! I mean life is way too short to do it any other way!
And so, I took some leaps the past couple of weeks.
- I networked like a networking fool! I emailed, researched potential connections on Facebook and LinkedIN and called some key people in the clam industry.
- I got Bold: I said I wanted to meet while we are on vacation there. And they took the bait!
- Next steps: still defining.
I am pleased with this progress and scared to death. I am trying to not to get my hopes up too high and not to rule out anything as I believe the journey is exactly that – a journey.
There will be bumps in the road and hills and choppy waters, but eventually, we will find our place.
Until then, I hope you enjoy my story as I continue “Operation Florida.”
