"You were a bad penny for awhile, figured you would turn up."
An old employer said this to me. An employer that I once respected and looked up to, once. It had really hurt me because during my time there I had worked really hard and had done everything I could for them. I wanted to reply with f bombs and something rude, I couldn't do it. I couldn't stoop to that level. It's just not me.
Instead, I let it stew. It's still stewing.
I'm using that as motivation. This was once someone who did not believe I could freelance and do anything on my own, it's time for me to prove them wrong. For all of you entrepreneurs out there, don't let anyone talk you out of your dreams. You can do it. I honestly believe that you can, no matter what that dream is. Whether you are a nutrition coach, an Etsy seller or whatever it may be, do it. Don't let anyone ever talk you out of it, the only one that really knows if you can do it or not is you.
I am someone who believes everyone should go after that dream job that they want. Why not? You should be happy going to work everyday. You should be excited to jump out of bed and go do what you love If you don't feel that way on most work days, you are in the wrong job. So get out there, follow your dreams.
Have you had any doubters along your journey?
