I had to make that move about 6 yrs ago and i'm still in the slow lane. BUT i have a stable position now that pays the bills, i'm stockpiling for the next venture. Keep your head up, it sux but you'll look back and be happy why this happened to you.Well, one of those threads no one wants to make.
Basically the dream came to a sudden halt today, flew too close to the sun and got burned.
My last year plus failed to produced enough tangible success and it's time to go back to the slowlane for the time being.
General details are that I spent the last year intending to build a business within the oil and gas niche and addressed various topics but could never cross the hump of getting clients.
Savings gone, accrued debt, probably have to go live back at home on a sofa again.
I violated several basic principles we talk about a lot on here and in the books in terms of how not to approach things (not bailing early enough, letting all your cash dwindle etc.) but I do feel this was a learning experience.
If this sounds vague or all over the place, I'm in a melancholic state of mind so that's to be expected. However I'm also sort of optimistic at the same time.
P.S. I haven't quit for good of course, just for the time being.
Cheers to all you guys
