I Quit My Job & Invested in Myself

By  | 

Many of you know I started working as a Pharmacy Technician last year, but a lot of you probably weren’t aware that I quit a couple of months ago. One of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make besides me moving to Atlanta. When I moved here I was offered a 9-5 M-F and I thought I was going to be happy. I wasn’t.

imageIt took less than a month before I started to realize that I could do better than this. Many nights I couldn’t sleep because I was depressed about going to a job that I hated but needed. It had so much control over my life 40 hours a week I invested in them. This doesn’t include the time it took me to get ready for work.

My first job was at Marshall’s when I was 16 before that I was selling snow cones & freeze cups (frozen Kool-Aid lol). I was an entrepreneur at the age of 13 and I didn’t even know what the word meant. Whenever you hear me say “I take this seriously” it basically means I love what I do and I don’t take it for granted. Not one second.

Now I work 10 hours or more a day and I sometimes no days off. Waking up every morning happy and excited about the day and the stress that comes with it.

This post is dedicated to those of who want to be happy doing something that you love and are struggling to get it off the ground. I’ve not made it, but I know I’m truly happy when I wake up now. It won’t be easy and it’s not a guarantee that your passion will financially beneficial. Invest as much time in yourself as you do the people that you work for.

Love what you’re doing and never become complacent. Complacency can be the death of you.
