Hi everyone!

I'm a 46 year old female who has been stuck in the entrepreneurship dreaming/researching mode for over 10 years now. I got stuck in analysis paralysis to say the least! I have about 20 hobbies and interests so this made it very hard to focus on any one thing.

A little summary of me; I worked in a factory for 18 years because it was what both my parents did, my dad actually arranged for my interview so I was pretty much forced to work there. When i got laid off, I spent the next decade or so discovering myself and learning all the new ways I could be my own boss and do what I love, while bouncing around to about 13 jobs in the meantime.

I have had a few blogs and websites but nothing has stuck for a few reasons. But now I am in a position where it's do or die, and after all these years I have finally narrowed it down to 2 choices (out of literally 30 or 40 I was thinking about). I will make separate posts about my ideas, but just had to introduce myself and say how excited I am to finally be putting this dream into motion! I read Unscripted and loved it, it was so motivating! So happy to be here and to get my entrepreneur career finally started!

Gaia means Earth so you destroyed Earth, lol

Well I say "do or die" because I quit my last job to figure this out, since I got a small inheritance last year. So I am living off that money while I figure this out once and for all. If I don't create my own income somehow then when my money runs out I will be forced to get a normal job again and all this time will have been wasted. I've been struggling for 10 years to make this happen but was always so busy with work that I only had a few hours a week to devote to figuring this out so now that I don't have a job taking up my time, if I can't make this happen now then it'll never happen.

Nice Determination! I will say, instead of figuring something new, why not use your current skills and find something in the domain you know? As good mentors here on TFF says, solve problems! Try to find problems in the current domain you know and solve that.

Good that you have thought to do something. So just do and let us all know what is happening via Progress Thread.

Have a good and Hard Hustle...

I already feel overwhelmed with being too busy the way it is, lol I want to spend less time talking about it and more time doing it. I will have enough accountability by looking at my dwindling bank account, lol
