Taking Risks: Sandlot Style

Posted on July 6, 2013

Quitting my job to become a consultant was super scary. Why would someone else pay me for my ideas when my boss just shot all of my ideas for his company down?  That’s why this quote by Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo, in the Ladie’s Home Journal really resonated with me:

I always did something I was a little not ready to do. That feeling where you’re like, ‘What have I gotten myself into?’ Sometimes when you push through it something really great happens.

It’s just like when people keep talking about the right time to have a baby. There will never be a ‘right’ time. If you want it bad enough and have been dreaming about it long enough (and by dreaming I mean researching and stuff too). At some point it’s time to just jump.
