I gave up my 9 – 5 for the second time in my life in September 2014 and I haven’t looked back since.
I paid off over $40, 000 in debt before I finally started on the path to what I wanted for myself.
I went down the rabbit hole of debt after my parents died less than 3 months apart.
Even though I recovered and moved on with my life, I am still not the same to this day. Nothing in this life can ever prepare you for eternal separation from your parents. Nothing.
I launched this website soon after leaving my job. The Writer Entrepreneur is a self-empowerment knowledge base for intending solopreneurs, freelancers, and dreamers with an action plan.
A little more about me. I began writing when I was 16 years old. My parents supported my dreams of being a writer but they also wanted the usual stuff for me – go to college, graduate, get a good job, marry, have kids and all that.
So I went to college, graduated, went from job to job as I tried to find myself, went through a starving writer phase that fizzled out within a few months, went back to work again, got engaged (ended in a complete disaster that nearly cost me my life) then finally travelled.
I landed in Dubai and went back to the normal stuff. I was good at what I did professionally but something was missing. I didn’t feel complete.
After a traumatizing year at work in 2012/2013, and a horrible and unexpected personal betrayal, I decided I’d had enough of living someone else’s dreams and agenda and it was high time I returned to my own dreams.
Lofty noble desire but I was old enough to know the dreams had to also generate an income or I would be right back to live someone else’s dreams eventually.
I put together a plan and in 2014, I decided to take the leap and open my own consulting business where a lot of what I do is focused on writing and creativity. I also spend a good deal of time working on my fiction writing under a different pen name.
