After working several years as a Java Programmer I reached a point where nagsawa na ako sa work ko.
I’m thankful for my job but I felt there’s something else for me outside my cubicle world.
I don’t know where I adapt it but I’m a person that would like to run my own show and take responsibility of whatever the outcome is.
So while sipping a Starbucks coffee in Tagaytay, I dreamed of having my own business and work anywhere I want and anytime I want.
Few years after, my dream became a reality.
Any place where there’s an electricity and Internet connection I can work there.
This is also the reason why I can go for a 3 to 6 months of vacation without worrying that I’ll lose my job.
Believe me, it’s better if you can create your own job, your own income, and have control of your life.
But I have to admit, after working from places like boracay beach, airport, mcdonalds, car dealership, public library, malls, etc. medyo nakakasawa din.
So 2 years ago, I changed my dream business into a bigger business that’s scalable, systematize, and something that I can pass on to my kids. And I believe 2 more years that will become a reality.
My point is this…
To escape the corporate world, it should start with a dream. It may sound corny but it’s true.
And your dream should be based on what you really want in life and not of someone else dream for you.
Work on it to make the invisible visible. Turn your dream business into reality.
Lastly, enjoy the journey of pursuing your dreams and transitioning to be an entrepreneur.
In the end, it’s not really about what you accomplished but who you become in the process of achieving your dreams.
