Many people write about quitting the 9 to 5 and doing your own thing. There’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, it’s an admirable goal to have. That being said, you CAN excel at your current gig and explore your passion at the same time.
I’ve been with the same company now for 5 years. In the technology space, this is already good. I’ve been fortunate enough to move up the ranks and it’s been a rewarding journey. As I’ve been writing before, I’m in corporate technology sales.
I cherish the work I’m privileged to do with my clients. The relationships I have in my industry are very fulfilling. I value them more than anything else I do in my work environment. That doesn’t mean I don’t have other passions or things I want to explore. Hence, I started writing and working with others to improve their lives and work performance.
A lot of times, people ask me how I find time to write for 1440. My answer is simple. I’m passionate about writing and helping others. I also am driven by leaving a legacy, especially for my children. For me, it’s an easy trade-off. Time for me stands still when I’m writing.
