    Happy to be here folks. I am a marketing director in a corporate. I've spent my life as a corporate slave and I want to change it now before it really is too late. I am 56 already...tick tock. Havent done it before because I was afraid. I think I have a skill or two and I want to go out on my own. I know I have so much to learn - and hope to be able to learn from you guys, and also share a bit from my own experience. I think fear is the thing that stops most people...but I do believe it's there for a reason - it's a balance and a check against being reckless. My fear stems from two places: 1. who will be when I am no longer a comfy corporate slave? 2. do I really have the brains to make it - to make money? I hope I can get over my fear and go for it.

    Welcome Twizzle.

    Who will you be? Probably more of who you really are.

    Do you have the brains? Undoubtably. You've survived in corporate land long enough, and risen to director level.

    It's not about brains though. It's not even about street smarts. It's just about taking a breathe and having a go.

    You don't need to make a big scarey step anyway. Just do a bit on the side and see how easy it is to add value and get paid for it.

    The first 4 bolded links in my signature might help you.

    Welcome to the forum.

    So you identify as a "comfy corporate slave"?

    except something in me doesn't...and I try to keep it in the box. It leaks out, though. I can't play the politics - in fact, I won't play the politics; I hate it. I am not sure whether I admire people who do, or not. One thing is for sure, and I realised it far too late. A good personality is a currency. If you have one, don't be afraid of it. I was and I regret not using it.

    You will be a brave free individual with autonomy. You will be a dynamic person who will be maximizing the use of her time.

    You already know how to make money by providing your services. It's the same thing ma'am. :) You're just gonna do it differently this time --your way.

    Time for new adventures!

    Hey @Twizzle - Welcome aboard.

    The genuine lesson life teaches, is that everything boils down to a.c.t.i.o.n.

    I know you are thinking - 56-tick-tock; however, the great thing is that at 56, you still came to this decision because you have recognised there IS more to life than the script.

    Being/Becoming the Director of any company isn't an easy walk in the park, so it means you have the willpower within to accomplish. Being the Director of a company and making the solid decision to go Unscripted, kudos, the time is ripe for you to build your own successful, valuable, unscripted company.
