I never knew it could be possible a year ago…
I just retired from Corporate America 5 days before I turn 40.
Say what? I truly never even thought this could be a reality a year ago.
But HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
I’ve had a side hustle for 6 years now, but it wasn’t until last year that I started getting serious about setting some lofty goals for myself.
Back in January, I even wrote down my exit date…September 29th, 2023
I allowed myself to dream…what will it look like when I accomplish these goals? What will it afford me the opportunity to do in life?
Earn additional income?
Build my savings?
See people enjoying my products?
Provide employment to others?
Travel the world and work from anywhere?
Make an impact in my community and beyond?
QUIT my day job?!
So I began praying big prayers over these goals and September 29th.
Fast forward to end of March, I get a call at my day job that my role is changing. I can either find a new role within the company or take a severance and leave. Here is the kicker – while other people were being laid off, I was graciously being given a 6 month period to make my decision.
I hung up the phone that day, looked at the calendar, and my jaw dropped…it was March 29th, and in exactly six months, yep, you guessed it…September 29th.
I wish I could tell you it has been all faith over fear these last 6 months, but it is a scary leap of faith to leave a stable and steady job you have done for 17+ years.
BUT, the Lord is faithful and I can truly say it is the most amazing feeling to have turned in my corporate badge last week.
Life is too short not to make an impact doing what you love.
It’s not without a lot of hard work, mistakes made, and lessons learned.
BUT, it is 100% worth it!
One of the single biggest growth factors in my business has been attributed to one decision….
I decided to quit pop up markets and start wholesaling my products.
Now, my products are in boutiques all across North America and growing every day.
If you have a dream of truly scaling your business, maybe even quitting your day job, take my free and simple quiz to see if wholesaling is right for you.
I’m cheering you on and can’t wait to celebrate your milestone successes this coming year!
