The Day I Lost My Job

In an instant—everything changed.

I had been planning my escape route from my 9-5 job for the past 3 months down to the number of paychecks I would have to live off while I got my social media agency running. 

The call that I joined that afternoon to be informed that my job was eliminated was short but completely life-changing. 

Previously I was working 12 hour days to perform all my regular job duties and take calls with my own social media clients while trying to regularly post on Instagram. I was beyond burning the midnight oil while worrying if I was making the right choice to leave what appeared to be a stable job during COVID-19.

But the fact that I was grinding daily on work I was passionate about was what kept me going. 

After that afternoon, like many others, that stable job was gone. But I was free to start working on my dream. 

Everything that I had been planning, learning, and doing to grow my business and that of other entrepreneurs I was working was my new reality. 

And I am loving it. I love that I can take a call any time of the day, spend an extra 30 minutes consulting on a project, and be small business support to my clients without worrying if I'll have anything left after working a job that I hated. But most of all, I love the results that my clients are seeing now that I can walk alongside them. 

My goal for the past 10 months was to be able to do work that I am passionate about and using my strategy skillset in content creation. 

Now I get to set new goals. 

So I want to know: what is the goal that you are working towards? Is it to book a few more clients this month?

Is it to move into e-commerce now that we are so limited in what we can do in person?

Is it to be able to spend more time with your family and not being chained to your phone?
