When I started my Little Ruby Designs business 16 years ago, I was not in a position to start a company and attempt to work from home. I actually had another business at the time (and a brand new baby) and I wanted to quit a thriving enterprise to start a new one. I had $300 to invest. It was a bad idea by all intents and purposes. But I just decided to get started. And it worked out…at least for a while. I will talk more about that later on.
Once Begun is Almost Done
Fast forward to present day. I started a new full-time job in November piloting a medical assistant program for a new start-up career college. During the lull between being hired and starting my classes, I had a ton of time on my hands to explore the internet, do some personal research, and think about what I want from the future. I decided that now was the time to achieve my goal of an advanced degree. So I researched and enrolled in a master’s degree program. Choosing my passion…education. My classes are fun and introspective, and I have thought of a thousand creative ways to use what I am learning to achieve my goals. Other things happened during that time when I had too much time on my hands too, or immediately after as recruiting and classes got underway. I realized that I get frustrated with students who cannot be honest with themselves (or me for that matter) in terms of attending class and finishing assignments. I realized that I am a little fried. And I remembered something else…something incredibly important. Something…magical. I remembered that I really want to be my own boss. Working full-time (I have a part time job too) and being in school full-time and being a single Mom of two kids is plenty of work. Too much, perhaps, at least according to some. But, I want to blog, I want to build my Little Ruby Designs business, I want to help others find their purpose, chase their dreams and find success in their own lives, however they define it. I want, eventually to have control over my schedule, to live on acreage with horses, goats, a pig, and maybe some chickens. I don’t want to commute from my country oasis to a job I don’t love. I have too many irons in the fire and now is not the time for such fanciful musings. I could wait until the time is right. Or I could just get started.
So here we are. Let’s get this thing started!
Thank you for coming with me on my journey!
I want to know what your aspirations are too! What would you attempt if you knew that you could not fail?? The sky is the limit…dream big!
