Freedom: A rant.
I want to be an "entrepreneur".
I don't want to work a 9-5.
Some people do, and it can be an amazing fulfilling job for them. One is not better than the other, but for me right now, I can't imagine my life like that.
I used to think that it would be kind of a cool thing to work in an office like the one in "the office". To be in a cubical and do my thing, while also being able to be a part of a company seemed like a reasonable and safe job.
I realize now that I didn't want that at all. I just liked the thought of connecting with people but also having my own space, and ability to work on my own thing.
The people part is just me. I really genuinely am such a people person and I only have learned that by other people telling me. The world is full of interesting, smart, good people and I want to talk to them all. And of course there is the opposite, but God created all of us in his image. From there he gave us free will, and the ability to choose what to do and who to be.
I just constantly am thankful for so much.
But I guess I'm saying this because I didn't even know that being an "entrepreneur" was a thing 5 years ago.
I get in my own head sometimes thinking about what being a "entrepreneur" really means too. Am I even one?
For me being an entrepreneur means that I can chase my passion and dream, and I don't have someone to answer to. It is freedom. Time freedom. Mental freedom. It is creative, and tough, and takes a certain capacity and willingness, but the alternative for me right now seems crazy.
Besides that, in the world we live in today, with the technology and accessibility of information coupled with the ability to gain knowledge whenever we want, it has become more practical to do what you really want.
I think that being a marketer and entrepreneur opens so many more doors for me today, than the alternative, and I hope that you reading this can learn that as well.
In the end, I would much rather have people ask me how I got to where I am and be able to say that I chased my passion and worked my ass off, then to have them know I was at at job I hated for 30 years.
Being "unrealistic" has never been more real.
