Ever since opening my shop I have dreamed of quitting my ‘day job’ and working on my shop full time. Well that day has finally come! After teaching preschool for twelve years I felt it was time to move on.
There are so many reasons for me to stay where I was and continue on with life as I knew it. But honestly I wanted more. When I started teaching it was only supposed to be part time until I was done with school. Well that didn’t happen. Out of love for the children (and maybe a little fear of change) I stayed year after year. Change is not my thing. Every time we’ve moved from one house to the next I cried even it I hated living there. So to quit my job, to do what I love was HUGE for me. It took a good two years for my sales to become consistent enough that I felt comfortable leaving my day job. Having all the pressure on me to make a living at this full time is kind of scary. We prayed about it a lot and felt like now was the right time. Even after giving my notice at work I was still second guessing myself about wither I made the right decision or not. The July came and confirmed it for me. My shop had record sales and everyday I thanked God for his reassurance.
Change is scary but good, and most of all necessary.
