Why I’ve Chosen This Journey

Why I’ve Chosen This Journey

I havenโ€™t had a job working for someone else since I was 19.

However, Iโ€™ve had moments where I was sitting at a laptop, trawling through job advertisements for big brand companies.

Fast forward to today.

Iโ€™m 31 and Iโ€™ve never made the jump.

Iโ€™ve felt tired.

Tired of not paying myself a proper salary.

Tired of working months (and years) on a project with a high probability of failure.

Tired of not seeing my wife, family or friends because Iโ€™ve got a to-do list that is overwhelming me.

It takes a toll. It feels like you are stranded amongst the breakers at the beach, being buffeted time, and time again.

And yet running a business is also completely energising and exhilarating.

Designing solutions that solve real needs for people.
Leading customers and team to grow and improve.
Seeing peopleโ€™s lives transformed.

Itโ€™s easy to lose sight of this along the journey and the inevitable challenges.

At times Iโ€™ve forgotten my why. Iโ€™ve forgotten to celebrate.

But when I reconnect with why I am doing what I do, and when I remember to celebrate (or more often, my team reminds me to celebrate), I realise something:

I wouldnโ€™t have it any other way.
