Just starting “Week One” of my new totally independent career. it is a mixture of all emotions from minor fear to total excitement. Leaving a secure job was a bold move, but I believe the right one for me. I will have to dig deep and rely on my coaching skills, self awareness to stay focused and true. I have had some great notes of support from all quarters. One recurring theme was that everyone has been asking what is it like now. There are of course many differences, but for me the most noticeable one for me, is that I don’t feel the need to be connected to my phone or laptop continuously for fear of missing that vital note or message. I am sure it will get more lonely and I will thus get more anxious in the short term, as I wait for work to build up, but the feeling is definitely good.
