005: Homie Chat with “Sally” about taking the leap and focusing solely on her business

A while back a fellow homie posted in my Facebook group, here’s was she said…

“Hey designers! I all new to this group, but definitely see some familiar faces! I would like to know if anyone here could help council me a little bit. Would anyone who is business savvy be willing to have a phone conversation with me?

I have 2 full time jobs. I work full-time as a designer at a Properties company and I also work full-time for my “side design business” which I have been in business for 1 year. I have 2 kids, ages 9 and 5.

My anxiety is really starting to wear on me and I can tell that I am taking it out on my daughter bc she just wants to spend time with me and I can’t give her the attention she needs.

I asked my boss if I could take off 1 day during the week and I could take a pay cut. He doesn’t want me to do that. My side business is doing good and he knows I want to take time off so I can focus on it.

I would love to quit my job so I can run my Design business but i can’t convince my husband bc of financial obligations. He is not a risk taker.

I am feeling very overwhelmed and would love to talk to someone today if possible. Thank you for listening.”

I can’t thank the members of the Business Homies Facebook group enough for chiming in with great advice. I reached out and asked her if she’d like to hop on a call and just chat things out.
