Do you have what it takes? I didn’t think I did, but here I am 25 years later and find it hard to imagine ever working for someone else.
It took me about four years and four different jobs, including working for myself as a typesetter. I worked for a real estate sales magazine, selling a travel franchise and even making jewelry and selling it at craft fairs and boutiques.
But when I took over an existing travel franchise, I began to develop actual business acumen. That involved showing up five to six days a week, putting in long hours, brainstorming various methods of finding new clients and developing relationships with others who might have contacts that would need my travel services.
It did take me about 6 years to find my footing. I tried many sales jobs and found it impossible to relate to a job. I knew that if I did well I would earn an adequate income and then some, but the disappointment I felt from the Fortune arena left me less than enthusiastic.
It wasn’t until I decided to buy the travel franchise that I became more centered on my ability to be involved. Being involved in my community gave me a sense of belonging and a greater purpose than simply having a job.
