I had a real estate sales company that I built from the ground up to be one of the top 1% in the state of Texas. I made an exit and walked away from that company and income to pursue my dream of building enterprise tech. Leaving complete stability, high income, recognition, etc. to enter an industry where I had no experience, no background, and only an idea was probably the biggest "this better work out or I'm screwed" jump I've made.
@evst I took a leap of faith this year. I was heading sales (regional) for a pretty big firm, well paid, good perks. Quit that job to start my Saas startup, against everyones advice. Hustling everyday and hoping it works out!
A bit personal but definitely having my son, while working and pursuing my Master's degree. He was 5 months old when I defended my thesis and I had no sitter. So I brought him to my presentation during his nap and hoped he didn't cry. He didn't and I graduated with no debt. I'm a strong believer of you can achieve anything and everything you want in life; professionally, academically, and personally.
@mia_pham Mia this is awesome! I am also a mother and a strong believer that you can achieve anything you want if you are willing to work for it. We're only limited by your own beliefs. Juggling motherhood and a career can be difficult sometimes but miraculously it always works out!
