The title of this post was actually a quote from one of my MBA teacher. When you need to stand up and do your things, you need guts. While guts don’t have a sex as anybody can do what they believe in, it cannot be bought either. A long time ago, I wrote a post about the reward of entrepreneurship. A friend of mine started a company and sold it about a year and a half ago. He became a director of his company which got shaped into a division of the buyer’s company.
I had a lunch with him a few weeks ago and he was telling me that he quit his director job to start again as a freelance. He didn’t agree with some company directions and was frustrated of not operating his company as he wanted (after all, this is the what happen when you sell your car but still use it; you don’t necessarily sit in the driver’ seat anymore!).
So he decided to quit his well paid job and start over again. No more 9 to 5, no more boss, no more BS as he told me 😉 On the other side, he also trade pay cheque security and bonus comfort to variable income anxiety and performance urge.
He was still a bit nervous about his decision but didn’t regret it at all. He just couldn’t work anymore in his old company. Things had changed and he didn’t feel happy about it. In fact, his entrepreneurship was kicking back and he needed to feel in control again.
So he had the guts to quit. I admire him because I know what it requires to quit your job for “nothing” waiting for you next Monday. On the other side, he is now fuelled with a brand new energy; the fire lighting his passion like it used to be.
People are always saying stuff like “if I had money, it would be different, I would start something” or “I have a lot of responsibilities, I just can’t quit like this” while others think “I’m going to make it”. I’m actually part of the first group for now but I don’t envy people from the second group; I simply admire them 😉
I hope that someday, I’ll have my own business; that I will make it 😉
