“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”. Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
I remember back when I quit my flunky sales job at the furniture store to work at my own furniture repair business full time. It wasn’t an easy decision because there was a lot of security in having steady employment and I had a family to support. But then after I took that single leap of faith–and a pretty bold move I thought–I never looked back. Later, the magic was that my former boss not only subcontracted me to do his customer service work, I also got sales commission floor time whenever I minded the store for him. He now treated me as an equal in the business and, I swear, it was just magical how simply going from employee to being self-employed changed everything. All because he was now in competition for my time rather than the owner of it.
