After working for others in the data recovery profession for over a decade, I finally made the decision to form my own company in mid-April. Since then, I've been working diligently to get all of the pieces in place for my official launch date, which is now Monday, June 4th, 2018. Everything is currently on schedule, if not just a little ahead of that timeline. I've actually received several projects even before I've done any sort of marketing or promotion - and this seems very encouraging to me.
I'm very excited about the adventure that lies ahead for me. While the first year for any new business is bound to have challenges and startup pains, none of these obstacles are entirely new to me. I have actually been through this process twice now on behalf of other owners. So it has been somewhat comforting to realize that so much of what this job entails is already second nature to me.
I've always had the right mindset and work ethic to do this work on my own. I just needed a little more courage to take that risk and prove it. I'm hoping that my decision might also inspire others to follow suit in pursuing their own dreams by thinking outside the box of "corporate employment opportunities". If you've saved your money and have a skill that you can sell, why allow someone else to capitalize on your talents? At some point, hopefully sooner than later, you too can do it for yourself and be your OWN boss.
