So I decided to start a podcast!! What? Will anyone listen? Of course. My mom loves me so there's one. My wife has to live with me so there's two. Both of my boys will do something wrong soon enough so this will be the perfect punishment and there's FOUR!
In all seriousness, I've decided to make a HUGE transition in my life and I'm going to document the journey. I've learned so much over the last 9 years about stepping into the unknown, building skills I never had, and facing fears I never thought I would face. My time on the frontlines as a first responder is coming to an end.
I loved these past years but I love the business my wife and I have been building and the freedom it provides in relationship to time. With the current state of affairs this is my coming out post. I'm preparing to put down my badge and focus 100% on our home based business.
Am I scared you ask? You have no idea!
Am I excited? 100% yes whenever I'm not scared.
My emotions are running wild but the time has come for me to make the change. Here's what I realized over this past four weeks I've been contemplating the decision:
The skills I learned as a first responder and crisis negotiator are a big part of the success we have found in our business.
Network Marketing is something I'm proud to be a part of. It's not the model of business that's the problem, it's the way the business has been modeled by so many that makes it feel slick, slimy, and all the other junk words.
I can use what I've learned to help people build their businesses even as my wife and I continue to build ours.
All those things combined show me this truth: It's time to take another scary step and start the process of launching out away from the comfort of a "regular" job and live a dream life I believe in. The launch of this podcast starts the journey which will take a few months to be complete and will lead to the next part of journey.
I hope you'll join me. I need all the support I can get!
