What’s the most terrifying decision you’ve ever made?

I’ve written about my position before. It’s my (usually) 9 to 5, a temporary position working in research. We’ve got a significant amount of downtime right now, so when i do have to report to the office, it’s to twiddle my thumbs or complete a tedious, copy/paste task to help out another part of our department. These are the moments where I ask myself, “Is this really what I want to be doing?”


No, it’s not.

The position ends 7/31/18. I’m currently in a good place with my bills and planning my 5yr total debt payoff plan (i.e. student loan emancipation day).

Will 8/1/18 be day 1 of full-time ZEC? I could do so much more groundwork with more hours but, as a human, it is terrifying. I’ve gotten dissent and backlash, people who don’t believe in me or what I want to do. I’ve hired an assistant who starts 4/1, but would love to do more with the marketing team. I have also enrolled in Computer Science and Graphic Design courses, and I’m actually excited about it.

How did you find the strength to step out on faith?
