In January 2016 I had had enough. I was tired of my corporate job and had lost passion for it. I was disengaged with my clients and I knew I needed an exit strategy; fast. I had strung myself along for too long. I had finally made the decision to begin my exit strategy for taking a leap of faith. January was a rough time for me. My father was in the hospital from heart failure and had been in and out since October. I was not in my right state of mind, though I pretended to be, I didn’t want to lose my father. I kept it together most days but often times I found myself crying.

In November 2015 I started an online business. I am in love with fashion and beauty so I began selling fashion accessories and clothing for women online. Within a couple weeks I was earning money. I was happy that I finally came across something that worked for me and was also enjoyable. This was part of my exit strategy and was keeping me motivated enough to help me make the leap.

I didn’t tell a soul. I had a plan mapped out and I followed it to a T. Because of my dedication and determination to be successful without a job, I became successful. I am successful. It all goes to taking the leap of faith which I talk about here. I had my dignity and I had my faith. That’s all I needed. I had my plan. If all fails, the worst was that I’d have to get another job and continue down my path. That thought wasn’t scary to me as I could easily find another job in my field. I worked in the lovely world of HR.
