Be Bossed vs. Be the Boss

I am so stuck right now. I left my job at the end of 2016 because of an unsafe work environment. Was on disability because of it for almost a year. Went back to work as a temp at the end of 2017. The assignment ended and now I'm trying to focus on whether or not I want to be my own boss or continue to look for a real job. I know i want to be my own boss but not sure if I'm going to succeed. writing is my passion as well as cooking. So it would be one of those two things but hard as hell to get the ball rolling when you have no money to get you there. Ugh - rock and a hard place.

Hi Stephanie!

If you want to be your own boss, first get rid of the labelling of working for someone else as a 'real' job. Any job is a real job if it supports you! I would recommend trying to get another temp position while you work on your own business, as it can take some time before you will be able to monetize it. What type of business are you thinking about starting?

Please let me know how I can help!

Ask yourself this? If i were an employer or someone that could help you live your dreams of having your own business do you think that they would consider you based on your ability to make real life decisions, confidence, and attitude? Think of these things when all is on the line. Work it right!

Your own business.
