The Day I Quit My Job
This post has been seen 2981 times.
Today was my last day in the Corporate World and my first day as a full time Entrepreneur.
I am nervous, but it’s that type of nervousness I feel when I am about to deliver a big speech I know I have prepared for.
I am excited about what the future holds, I am excited about doing more work in the community, I am excited about writing more books, I am excited about @okadabooks and our mission to disrupt publishing in Nigeria, excited about speaking at Schools (Education is my passion)
I am excited.
It took me 12 years, 2 months, 20 days to finally gather the courage to resign. Lots of fear held me back and doubt crept in. What if I fall sick, what if I fail and people laugh at me?
Those questions kept circulating in my head.
And when I turned in my resignation 1 month ago I kept thinking I had made a big mistake. But then this week, I felt so much happiness, so much lightness, so much excitement about a future that I get to define… For the first time I was sure about my decision. I am my own boss now. Watch this space because Ofili is finally going to Speak!
