Great post, Jeff! I’d been wanting to quit my job and start my own business for over 3 years until my job finally “quit” me. :)
I was laid off late last year. I still have a bit of a runway to get something of my own started.
I’ve since joined Tribe Writers and I’m loving it. I agree with you that there really are no shortcuts. This was a good reminder to not let myself get overwhelmed by the enormity of what I need to learn and do. Thanks!
