Making the scary jump to a new career, wasn’t exactly my idea since I was laid off. Looking at all my options and talking with friends and family, I realized what I wanted to do; inspiration to make a go of it on my own. But I think its given me the push I needed to try. Sometimes I wonder if anyone has been this nervous or scared venturing out on their own. I know I have to keep going… Like Penelope Dullaghan in her How I Became an Illustrator, ” A ship in a harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships are built for”. I have been reading the how tos and preparing to go to seminars; how to run a business etc. Making plans trying to see what could be or needs to be. Its a little scary THE LEAP, unsure of where you are going.
