Quit Your Day Job

Last week I quit my job in the gulf. As in I was supposed to go back on the 9th, and on the 4th I called and said I'm not coming back. The days after I quit I wondered if I was doing the right thing. Yes living in a hotel for the last 1.5 years has sucked, but I am financially well off because of it. It was a decision that meant I could start the next chapter of my life. So for about one week I was jobless, minus being self-employed by my business. I knew that the shop couldn't pay all my bills, so I needed something else part time.

Monday night I got a call asking if I was interested in nannying 3 days a week for 2 boys, the best part, for the next 9 months! I met with the family Tuesday and today will be my first day. I am beyond excited that for the next 9 months I will have a steady source of income and be able to work on my business. It's amazing how everything falls into place once you stop trying to control everything. 

I am so thankful for my job on the gulf, it was very hard to leave the company, although I'm not ruling out our paths crossing in the future. Having a job right out of college was a blessing and I do not take it for granted. I know I wouldn't be at this point with my shop if it weren't for my gulf job. So if any of my coworkers are reading this, thanks for the last year and a half. I'll miss you all and keep on running!


  1. Okay, got the message. Hopin you change your mind.

  2. Well, your magnet is still up on the board, but with no date, so we thought you weren't coming back. I wanted to let you know that it was nice working with you and best of luck with you're business! It seems to be going well for you so far! Take Care!
