As 2019 comes to a close, It’s natural for us to be taking stock of what went well this year and what we could have done better. I probably couldn’t have predicted the way this year was going to go. You know, like the great Mike Tyson once said, “Everybody has a plan, till you get punched in the mouth.” I had some big plans to start 2019, they didn’t come through, I also never expected to get a job offer and actually take it but I did and now I can say that I resigned and I am back to being a full-time Entrepreneur again.
When you are going the self-employed route, sometimes it’s necessary to jump back into the corporate life. Maybe you need to make connections, get experience or get a cash injection.
For me, I was presented with an offer, the same day I learned that one of my big plans I had been working on since 2018, was getting shelved. I decided to take the job offer presented and use that money to build my brand and fuel some of the initiatives I had planned.
It meant that for the last 6 months, I needed to work. I committed myself to get up at 3 or 4 am, getting my work done for my own business before I headed out to the 9-5.
