I am a married man, with a pretty young family. My wife of 6 years and a 5 year old daughter. Both of us work for a living trying to provide the best that we can for our family.
Been working for the last 14 years, i do have a stable job, but the corporate world is taking a toll on me, i work hard but many times experiencing feeling of overwhelmed or you could say burnout. It has been rough without being able to find or given a chance to move for a change in position or even for a promotion. Many a times compromising health and family time, day after day like is a normal routine for as long as i can remember.
So much so, that i am willing to make a change or rather to decide to leave this corporate world behind. The thought has always cross my mind for the past 2-3 years everyday it hasn’t escape my mind. What i need is an escape plan. The biggest hurdle is with so many commitments and responsibilities, i can’t do this. I have a plan, to set up a business from home, and have been exploring this for the past 1 and half years. People say to look at your passion and let that be your means of living, to be able to make work or business out of it. The goal is to ultimately not having to wake up to anxiety, constantly rushing for deadlines and bosses requests and to be able to spend more time with family, with my daughter and my aging parents.
Perhaps, im asking for too much. I may have found my passion after all the years of dabbling, experimenting and searching, But i need some help to get started. I want to be able to quit my job and start to focus on my project. I have not much savings to cater for my current commitments, bills and loans if i were to quit my job which is preventing me from doing so. As it is i make just enough to sustain from month to month.
In the long term, the corporate world is not where i want to be. I have lost the zest in life and it has turned me into this lifeless being. I guess, what im trying to say is that, im looking for a way out and am trying to reach out to anyone out there who is willing to help me out. Thank you so much, and most of all thank you for listening. Should there be any, my link is as below, and hope to also one day do the same for someone else.
