I quit my job, now what!
I want to start this off with how incredibly grateful I am that I was able to have found a job so quick when I moved to Chicago, and be able to pay all my bills. But although I try to think on the positive side of things, there is only so much one can take. I started my job in October of 2017 and was already miserable by December of 2017. For the past year I had been trying to find a new job, but I was unable to find one. So about a month ago I made the decision to quit my job(with my husband blessing of course).
Why did I quit?
I don’t want to get into the minutiae details, but let's just say my job has been affecting me negatively. I have stopped doing things I used to love. Like this blog of mine. I was so passionate and excited about my blog and the whole industry. I would find myself always searching new trends and new ways to get my blog out there. But then all of a sudden it stopped. I quit my job because it was affecting my life outside of work, including my relationship with my new husband. I felt that I was always complaining and was just not in the mood for anything. All I would do is just watch Netflix and eat. But to summarize it, I didn’t like the work I was doing and the environment was not what I was expecting.
Why couldn’t I find a new job?
So like I mentioned I tried finding new jobs. I even went on a few interviews and second interviews. Always with the same outcome, no offer. To tell you the truth I had never been denied so many times before and it was disheartening But I never gave up because I knew I couldn’t be content with where I was. Sometimes I like to think that I never got any of those jobs, because it wasn’t meant to be. I'm a huge believer in, everything happens for a reason. And I thank God for closing all those doors on me because I am realizing what I should have done a year ago.
What will I do now?
That’s the big question isn't it? Should I go back to school? Should I start looking for a new job or start my own business? How about all three! I decided to just go for it and I’m going to do what I have been wanting to do for about a year! I am launching my online design and social media business this January! I will focus on branding and design for entrepreneurs, bloggers, and small businesses. I am still keeping my blog, which I will still blog about life, business, social media, and design. I will begin looking for a job as wellI have been working on this for the past several months and am so excited. I am accepting clients for the new year, so let’s get your business off to a great start by working with me!
Why you should quit your job too?
As we all know life is short. And we are only blessed with one physical life to live. So why waste it being miserable and hoping for something. I made a pro con list to see if quitting was the better option or just sticking it out. So I would suggest that as well. I would also suggest finding a job before quitting as well, but sometimes you have to take the leap anyway. Anyway
