You hate your job.
You want out.
Or maybe you don’t hate it that much, but you don’t love it very much, either, and you’d rather be doing something else. Something you LOVE.
You are not alone in this.
Millions of people go to a job they don’t love every day. They feel trapped. They want out, but they don’t know how to get out.
But five thriving entrepreneurs that are very successful DO know how. And they want to share their stories with you. Each has a different perspective on how to leave, which is good. Find the one that works for you.
It is in these stories where you can find the strength to leave and the hope you need to start something new. It’s scary leaving a job. I know. I did it. But it doesn’t have to be. You will land on your feet, I promise.

Are you familiar with the 80/20 rule?
It’s originally known as the Pareto Principle and it basically says that 20% of the input creates 80% of the result.
In other words, only 20% of you will do whatever it takes to become published, produced, or put on display in the world of writing.
Only 20% of you will ever see the project you started come to fruition.
Only 20% of you are willing to be criticized, crucified and ridiculed in order to become part of the 80% result.
Sadly, many of you will give up. You will decide you don’t have what it takes or that you really suck at writing. You’ll believe those lies because frankly, it’s easier to believe the lies than to face the truth.Read More
No matter what you do in your creative venture, I’m willing to bet you have to sell something. Your services, your time, your talent, your product, your book….something.
For some of you, quoting yourself and “going for the ask,” (the sale) is the most difficult part of what you do. It might be the one thing keeping you from really making money. If you’re anything like me, you want to make money in your creative business. And you want to because you don’t want to have to go back to the grind outside of your talents to work for someone else.
I don’t want that for you, either.
So to help you ease into the space where you have to quote yourself and go for the ask, here are 3 tips to help you overcome the fear of making a sale.
A while back I was working with a conscious living coach and intuitive to help me work through some difficult times. As we talked about my work as a speaker and writer, she told me something I hadn’t noticed before:
“This is the generation of entrepreneurship,” she said. “There are more entrepreneurs and self-employed people than ever before. Within the next 50 years, you’ll see the largest majority of people working for themselves.”
…but the more I looked around, the more I saw she was right. Not only did that realization help me reinforce my status as a creative entrepreneur, it made me realize I was in the perfect position to help other creatives profit from their talents without getting a second job that would only rob them of those talents.
Welcome to the generation of entrepreneurship.
Here are 3 reasons why you should be a part of it:
