Whenever I tell someone I left my day job to pursue what I want in life, I usually hear a lot of excuses about why they could never do the same.
There are so many excuses that I hear each time, but I won’t lie – I used to tell myself the same or similar excuses all the time.
I finally just had to force myself to take the leap before it actually happened and seemed real.
I’m not saying that you should go into your job tomorrow and quit your job right away. I think you should always have a plan if you can and have the opportunity to do so. Thinking about income, expenses, emergency funds, taxes, health insurance and so on are all important things to think about before you make the leap.

There’s been a lot of talk about passion lately. Other bloggers say not to even think about it until I’m 50. Or until my net worth hits seven figures. I like your way better 🙂

Congrats on following your passion – being able to earn a full time income while doing what you love is the best feeling in the world

I agree. History has shown that the most successful people in life, are people who do what they are most passionate about in life, and have leaped out in faith to make it happen. I’m getting ready to make a career change and I am so excited about it. If I don’t leap now…then when?
