Jump Off The Fucking Cliff

If there is one thing I have taken out of my early start up journey, It’s jumping off the cliff and figuring shit out as you fall. It is the quickest way to grow both personally and professionally. Try it!

No doubt, I am the most stressed out I have ever been in my entire life but I have never been so optimistic about my own future. I am just starting to discover that my blind confidence might be the key to creating a life I want to live on my terms.

I now realise that leaning into who I am and not who I think I should be has given me the self confidence and drive to take the next step in life.

When looking back at my childhood heroes I discovered they all had two things in common. Individuality and self confidence. They didn’t care what people thought. They just done it their way. If they fell, we laughed. If they won, we clapped.

I used listen to the little voice in my head that said I wasn’t good enough for this job or this role because I hadn’t gone to university or school to study it.. now I see this as an advantage. You are selling yourself, not your grades.

We now live in an age where individuality is celebrated, no more hiding in the shadows.
