I broke up with corporate when I realized it was never going to be built for women like me.
No matter how much I achieved or what I did.
School was always going to open at 8:15, but my job would need me to be there at 8.
Daycare was always going to close at 6, but rush-hour traffic would keep me on the road until 7:30.
The more I achieved, the more responsibility I’d have, and the less the hours in a day would make sense.
So I took everything I knew—everything from 10 years of side hustlin’, freelance writing, business and marketing college grinding, corporate marketing supporting—and threw myself into the entrepreneurial deep end.
I set up a website, a portfolio, and put a $197 sales training on my credit card.
I gave myself 21 days to match my corporate salary and quit my job.
I did it in 18.
