This took place at a turning point in my life and career and it was an experience that showed me that this was the path that I could see myself taking long term. I didn't think about it much before, but that experience also reminded me that I had the discipline and drive to do this type of work on a full-time basis.
Just a couple months after that, I resigned my full-time job and started my business. The benefits of being my own boss are numerous – independence, a flexible schedule, the ability to work from anywhere, the ability to chart my own path, take charge of my time and the opportunity to create employment for others. It's very exciting to relive that moment in time when I decided to start my business and not once have I regretted the decision to leave a full-time job behind.
Happy International Women's Day to all women! I hope you are fulfilled in whatever path you have decided to take in life.
