Good afternoon one and all!

A brief rundown: life has taken some 'interesting turns lately. And by interesting, I mean extreme changes. Not that it's that different from many others, but my FTE has finally happened. @mjdemarco, had it correct: you'll have many 'f*ck this' moments...but you'll know when you hit your FTE. Well, it's happened. At which point I had just begun reading "Unscripted". I am appreciative for all I have, and now stand at the precipice of 'what's next'...I don't have that answer as of yet, but am working on it. It’s also somewhat intimidating, but so liberating!

Thank you again for accepting me!

Well, what was it? Don't leave us hanging??!!
After 15 years in a job with nothing to show for the effort, time and sacrifices made, I resigned. I couldn’t have felt worse than when I left. After creating, launching and supervising the Operations Department of my last company, I was still a lowly peon on a corporate rung. Dealt with preferential treatment and inequality. Watched as a colleague who would arrive at 11am at least twice a week and sleep during the day, be promoted and get raises. All the whole, I picked up the slack. At the end of the day, sleep seemed like the only way to not break down. I felt completely broken. Not to mention broke and looking back on these years wondering what I had earned from all this. I couldn’t handle it anymore. I resigned. This is the short of the story - there’s much more to it. I was done. I no longer wanted to play this ‘game. This scripted role. And while I don’t have the slightest clue in which direction to turn regarding entrepreneurship as of yet, I do have my interests and trying to focus on them and problem-solve within. It’s been very liberating to say the least! While not having a paycheck to fall back on is intimidating, it’s also motivating. One hs to get going or nothing happens.
