No longer stimulated at work, I kinda gave my boss, and myself, an ultimatum.

Already convinced of the outcome and felt secured in that I could sustain my lifestyle and that of my kids, I requested a meeting where I shared thoughts on my current role, activities and what I felt was missing. The hope was to remedy an unhappy and ultimately an unhealthy work situation.

It was a last attempt to find something mutually beneficial and something I honestly could find fun.

Come April I was a man with no job, no plan nor even a desire to find another. I knew I wanted to work for myself but needed to “feel” what was next for me.

I always been a person with many business ideas, some outlandish, some not. I eventually decided to leveraged the skills I’ve developed to last 20 years in the IT industry, and this is where I am today.

I’ve developed a marketing and strategic business plan plus the skills and processes to fulfill my mission in this particular company I’m creating…

Which is: to be a key factor in driving efficiency and growth for my client’s success though advisory, technology, administration and digital marketing services.

The company is scheduled to be registered and ready for business this Monday, and I’m looking for professional sales people to begin executing on market plans.

Personally I’m adopting an atmosphere and mindset to better align myself with desired success and to better be of service.

I live a decent life, I’m loved, have emergency funds, I love life, I feel fortunate and I’m mostly satisfied as is.

However, a shift in mindset has been slowly happening, making me want more out of life and I’m seeing affluence in a different and more positive light.

This marks a new chapter in my life where I’m putting thoughts, impossible dreams, life pursuits and desired achievements as my main motivation for my foreseeable future, and beyond.

I’ve always had a feeling of accomplishing something great, and even though exactly what still eludes me, there are many things I would like to do and produce that will ultimately be of help to mankind in some manner.

This shift has helped me break old habits and is changing my life professionally as well as personally.

I’ve quit my employment and have shed all the things I came to realize was holding me back. Relationships, old grudges, sense of responsibilities that was doing me more harm than good and even material possessions I no longer use nor need.

Instead, I’m refocusing my energies in accordance with my own will and self-discipline as a means to better myself in all areas of life, do great things, meet amazing and inspiring people and have my wants come through while I and everyone I engage with grow.
