Celebrating My 3rd Year of Self-Employment

This week marks my third anniversary of full-time self-employment. Three years ago my son’s last day of school was also my last day of working for someone else. It has been a great experience so far and I wouldn’t trade my choice for anything. There is no going back. I am in too deep and I cannot imagine going back to work for someone else. You can read more about my journey here.

This past week I flew out to Las Vegas to attend a workshop given by one of my favorite mentors, Andrrea Hess. I had a four hour flight ahead of me and after attempting to sleep on the plane for some time, I found myself in conversation with the lady sitting next to me on the plane. After hearing about her travels and how tired she was going to be going back to work the next day, the conversation inevitably turned to me and the question of what I do for a living.

I told her that I was self-employed and was flying in for a conference. This was followed by a long silence and crickets. Beuhler…anyone? It seems just the fact that I told her I was self-employed was enough to make her look at me like my head could spin around all the way. She quickly changed the subject and talked about other things. Now, what is interesting here is I didn’t even get to the part about exactly WHAT I do for a living – being a life purpose psychic. Just imagine if the conversation had gone further down that road!

Anyway, I didn’t think too much of the conversation until I boarded the plane to come home, and ended up having a similar conversation with a different lady. Again, the question of what do you do came up, and I told her I was self-employed. This was again followed by a long pause and sounds of crickets. Again, the conversation was diverted to talk about other safer things and I never got to the second question of exactly WHAT I do for a living.

Both of these situations have led me to realize that for some people the thought of being self-employed is indeed terrifying, much less being a psychic. I began to realize how far I have come from that line of thinking.

So, here are a few of the differences I have noticed along the way to self-employment:

  • You need to be willing to start – and keep starting – each and every day.
  • If you really want a new experience for yourself and to transition out of your day job, you will find the time and money to make it happen.
  • You need to be willing to take action on your own without anyone telling you what to do. If I hadn’t taken action steps on my own two years prior to leaving my day job, I would still be working my day job.

I think sometimes being naive is a blessing. Back then, I didn’t know how uncommon it was to begin building a website, learn how to use WordPress, design my own header, set up an email list, and actually begin writing blog articles. I just DID it because I knew that was the next step in the process for me. Plus it was fun!

I also didn’t know how few people finish certification courses. When I applied for my Soul Realignment™ and Automatic Intuition™ certification courses, I expected to complete them – and I did. All without anyone holding my hand to do so. I have found out since that about 80% of people who spend the money on a certification course never finish it. It still boggles my mind that you would spend a serious amount of money on a certification and let it become shelf help.

So, do I have it all figured out yet? Not by a long shot. But I do know that if I hadn’t taken those first steps, I would still be doing the exact same thing that I was doing three years ago. Being self-employed has offered me a serious amount of personal growth and an opportunity to learn new skills. I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. This is who I am and this is what I do. I am glad I didn’t wait another 10 years to get started.

Congratulations Laurra on your 3rd year of self imployment …

Reading about your 3rd year of self imployment is very inspiring, i wish I could be more like you and know what it is i want and go get it. That’s the trouble I don’t really know what it is I want, but also one thing I have learned tonight not just from your self but by reading my numerology reading I have and realised that because I have such a wide range of interests in spirituality and holistic healing I need to really deside which one i really want to study like – Astrology, tarot card reading, numerology, crystal and energy healing and much much more and then take a course and follow it through and really ground myself with the knowledge I receive as I have learnt tonight that I can be somewhat delettenate or not haveing made a real commitment or looking deeper into a subject to gain greater knowledge instead if just skimming over the surface like I do!! proberly because I’ve got such a wide interest on the subjects. So I have learnt a lot in a day about myself.

Thank you Laurra
Love and light ***
