While updating a colleague I haven’t seen in awhile about the work I’m currently doing, I wrote the following:
“Long story short, I left my comfy, regular schedule, steady income VP job at an educational start-up and ventured out on my own ... It's been quite a ride since then! Being a one woman shop is not for the faint of heart, let me assure you. Yet I'm thrilled to be serving the clients I have and delighted when more call me up, asking me to bring the hard, priceless work of real change to their organizations. It's quite the roller coaster, but the work is too important and fulfilling to step off the ride!”
I don't think I'll be stepping off of this roller coaster any time soon.
For what cause would you step inside the car, pull the lap bar down, buckle your seat belt and let a machine toss, twirl and throw you around for awhile? For me, it’s resourcing deep transformation. In people, teams, organizations.
I’m fortunate to have found the work I know I am born to do ... but it’s one heck of a ride. If you’re thinking about joining me on the entrepreneurial roller coaster, keep reading.
Rules of the Ride:
- Screams are 100% allowed.
- Fear is 100% allowed.
- Laughter is 1000000% allowed.
- Give lots of high-fives to the person sitting next to you.
- Put your hands up if you dare, or white knuckle it all the way – you’ll do both at one time or another.
- Just. Get. On.
So, are you in? (high-five!)
