One Year Since my Last Day of Work

Written by Marc on September 9th, 2008

Well, today celebrates my one year anniversary of quitting my job.  A year ago I was teetering on the brink of a big decision – put my faith in business and my ability to make it succeed, or stay at my job and be like everyone else.

At the time, I was very unhappy with my job and I went to work each day only to come home angry.  I felt that there was just something wrong getting paid by the hour and coming home with next to nothing.  Add that to the fact that I was missing out on my children’s lives – it was just a price I was not willing to pay.

So, I quit and put my faith in the business.

Now, a year later, I can say that I have made the right choice.  Though we are not rich (yet), we haven’t starved and I feel that I have learned many new lessons over the past year.  I have also had the opportunity to network with a number of wonderful business owners, just like myself, and it is amazing to be part of a community of like-minded individuals.

So what does the next year hold for me?

Growth, learning and new challenges.  I am sure that hitting my goal of 500 websites will be a big milestone for me, even though I am still sitting at 400 or so sites short of it.  But I still have a little more than two and a half months to make it happen, and I’ll figure it out somehow.

I also want to increase the number of sites that I own that run on autopilot and phase out the blog posting service I offer.  I have had enough of writing for others, and I would rather like to focus on my own stuff instead.

Irrespective of what happens over the course of the next year, I know that I get to wake up each morning to run my little business empire and create my future doing something I love.  All I can say is that it is worth every penny.
