I was driving home one night from work with my 3 month old and my almost 3 year old in their carseats. My office kept calling me on the phone and when my boss called and started ranting -- it started to rain. The roads were slick and we live up a huge mountain so I was going carefully trying not to crash. My almost 3 year old son was crying and calling for me -- and I kept shushing him. When I finally looked back he had blood all over his face and shirt. He had a bad nose bleed and was trying to tell me.
I pulled over on this dark rainy canyon at 8 at night after working and driving for 10 hours and thought to my self. This is INSANE! I am INSANE for doing this. My kid is bleeding, I am soaking wet in the cold and dark -- for what? To be told over and over that I need to be in the office more?
After 15 years in the same job, I quit. I quit that Monday - worked out my 6-week notice (I was an executive) and suddenly I was free.
I started my own business because I was free to, I needed to, I wanted to and I wanted to create the life I have always wanted for myself and my family. I invite you all to, too!
