I have all the right-brain, artistic, ADD tendencies: easily distracted, often procrastinate, day dream, and so on. For quite some time, I've wanted to start an online business. I've read and read and read on this subject, taken some minor steps in the right direction, but still... All the advice I was reading on how to be successful seemed to focus on the very things that I found difficult, like being focused and consistent. My middle name is Sporadic. I was afraid of all the plates that need to be kept spinning, afraid of losing focus, just afraid.
So for the past few years, I kept taking mind numbing, soul-sucking jobs that paid me less and less and laid me off after a year until I was old enough to sort of retire. Still needing some income, I took a part-time job that I thought would be simple and less stressful. Wrongg, with 2 g's!
To be fair, I think I went in with certain misconceptions. Namely, that there would be some deference, reverence and dare I say, respect for my age and life/work experience. That probably shows my age, right there. People in their late teens and early twenties have apparently never heard of such things. They absolutely thought nothing of using the most profane language and speaking to me in less than respectful tones.
Anyway, it only took 3 weeks for me to be fed up. My level of tolerance for crap must be getting close to zero.
Long story short: I worked my butt off for two and a half days to get my site, some content, a domain name and a bunch of other stuff in place to be in business as a freelance writer. I knew I didn't want to go back, but I was afraid to quit without another source of income in place. I called in to quit anyway, which felt like freedom.

I made "DO THE WORK" my Spark signature just the other day. I consider this article confirmation that the Universe supports me.
