I QUIT!

Two of the hardest words I have had to say in a while! I have recently put in my resignation and it was really one of the most difficult things I have had to do in a long time. I love my job, but I know that there is something more, something bigger waiting for me. I had the day planned to ring in to the big boss and break the news that after almost 5 wonderful years with his amazing company we were about to part ways. Shit was getting real...

There are a lot of emotions attached to this life changing phone call - probably the biggest being fear. What if I am making a huge mistake? What if no-one likes my stuff, where am I going to live? How will I pay my bills? Loads of crazy thoughts swirling around in my head. Another fear - what if I succeed? Strange I know but I believe that this fear cripples people all the time. I just had to take some time out and know that as long as I am living true to my values the universe will have my back, and it will...

How did he take it? Not too bad I guess, once I explained what my plans are, that I had not been poached from the opposition and that this is something that I REALLY had to do he was ok, I have his blessing. It wasn’t so hard after all, I think I had just built it up in my head which is what we all tend to do from time to time. So, if you are out there thinking of making a big change in your life, perhaps going out on your own, I can now tell you first hand that it isn't as scary as it seems as long as you have a plan in place and you go with your gut.

So it is official, I have quit my job and am now self employed! I am a quitter hahaha. The fear has been taken over by excitement for what is ahead, as I have mentioned before I plan on working hard to bring you some amazing content from some far flung places. Our one way tickets have been bought and the countdown has begun! My final day of 'work' is December 21, 2012 (how apt - the end of the world). We are departing on January 6, 2013 and my first Location Independent Guide is set to be released in April, 2013. It's all happening.
