So true. It took me a long time to accept this for myself, to take charge and start my full-time consulting business. But I'd been thinking about it forever and I knew it was where my heart was and has been for the past several years.
There's no bigger thrill than taking the leap full time into that itch you just can't scratch. I've seen un-passionate people run mediocre businesses and I've seen passionate people dominate right out of the gate! I've also seen people fail. However, I'm a firm believer in that it's much more satisfying to have tried and failed then to never have tried at all.
The stories about playing it safe aren't the ones they talk about.
