Escape from the Rat Race

I have been asking myself the same question over and over again for the last couple months. Today is no exception, it just came earlier than usual. “What the hell am I doing here?” I asked myself as I pulled up the emergency brake in the staff parking lot. You see I’ve been a regular contender in the rat race for some 13 years now and I’m not sure just how much more I can take. I do this primarily for the pay check and these days it’s no longer a match for my bills when the two collide on the 25th of each month. By now I had already said good morning to the security guard, made my way to my office and logged on to my computer in preparation for another so-so day. Humans have this uncanny ability to remain in jobs, relationships and situations that make us miserable. What’s my excuse? I have no kids, no car or mortgage payments, not even a goldfish to take care of. I’m just an expert procrastinator, that’s all. Well that’s about to end, I’m about to embark on a business venture that will transform me from employee to entrepreneur and guarantee me the financial independence that I long for (I’m an optimist). Entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone but it’s a move I think everyone should at least consider. Do yourself a favour and think about it, especially if like me you can't remember the last time you actually looked forward to going to work.

Good luck, my brother. Now is a good time for you to take this step!

I have kids, car payments and a mortgage, so I'm going to just chill for now. If I can scrape some money together, I will try to start a ting on the side and try to build it, but I am just sitting in a holding pattern right now.

Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?

I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?

There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any recommendations? Cheers!
