Today is officially my last day being an employed person. Sad when I realised that I will see my ex-colleagues much lesser now. Since I came back to Malaysia, they have been pretty much the friends that have I kept closest to me. And I will miss them all very much.
Well, time to start the first page of my new life then!
Whenever I tell people that I am leaving to try and start my own business, I could see their curiosity along with “Hey, I wanna do that too someday”. The truth is, I will be worse off than anyone in employment right now. I will make so much less money, it will be such hard work, and there is no quarterly appraisal for me as guidelines to measure how I’m doing.
Basically I need to find my own way. And it’s really scary, to think that I decided to leave employment just based on an idea, with no clue how to achieve it.
Am I a bit silly to leave my job and then “figure it out”? Time will tell.
I follow Richard Branson on Twitter, and he recently posted quite a timely comment:
“Entrepreneurs are the crazy people who work 100 hours a week so they don’t have to work 40 hours for someone else”.
I love that quote, and I shall start my first post with this.
