“Do you know that you are doing something great? It takes alot of courage to do what you are doing.” What if I fail? “It doesn’t matter. You will learn something and you will gain from it.”
Those were the words that I exchanged with an ex-classmate when I revealed I have business plans.
I didn’t think I was going to do something great. I reckon the greatness she was referring to, was stepping out of the comfort zone.
New developments at Queenbels had me back-tracked a few matters, did some re-focus and re-model.
Some decisions were not pleasing but necessary.
I was asked quite often why I started my own business. Question on why I left a profession that is stable, pays well and a brand behind my name. I have never felt I left my profession, mentally. If you dump me a pile of ledgers and tell me the requirements of the end users, I am pretty sure I can put something together very quickly.
I know some point in time I will want to share the journey of starting my own business. I am waiting for the inspiration to kick in to put these thoughts in words.
I always believe things happen for a reason. When it comes, I listen to my heart and do sensibility analysis.
My foreword is:
Yes pursue your dreams but do not forget your responsibilities, as a son/daughter, or as a father/mother, or as a husband/wife. I personally maintain that it’s totally irresponsible to cast aside my obligations and pursue my dreams irregardless of everything. I cannot simply wake up one day and say, “Ok I am going to do this from now on so please take care of yourselves.” No I cannot do that.
Weigh your limits. Be realistic.
New designs are now in store. I hope to see you soon.
Have a wonderful weekend.
