Why I am winging it for a while

Hi everyone! So firstly apologies for the long winded title (I never was good at them) but I feel like it sums up this post perfectly. I have been unemployed for two months now and it has been a struggle. For me, though, it’s not even the lack of money that worries me, it is the pressure of finding a job. The hardest thing about finding a job is finding the right one for me, particularly after my experience with my last job. I get that not everybody ends up in a job they love or is perfect for them but my last job was more than just disliking it. I am actually scared that I will end up in another job that causes me anxiety.

With this in mind, I want to wing it for a while and start my own business. I know that people may think I am crazy as I don’t have a job to support me and I don’t have much experience but I don’t feel like I do need these things. For me, starting a business feels like the right thing to do right now because I don’t have any responsibilities and I personally feel that you are better off jumping in feet first rather than hanging on for the ‘right’ moment because there isn’t ever a right time to do anything in life. I know that for certain businesses you do need experience, particularly if you are providing a service, but I can easily learn as I go. I feel like there is a lot of pressure to be experienced when building a business but why can’t we just wing it?

I don’t have a solid idea for my business yet but I have a book called ‘The idea in you: How to find it, build it, and change your life’ which I hope will inspire an idea in me and help me develop it. I also started an online course on starting a small business so hopefully that will help me with the business side of it. I am also writing a book which I am enjoying doing. The thing for me right now is that I want to do what makes me happy and if that is exploring the unknown and trying to start a business of my own then so be it. The thing is that I don’t want to come across as one of those people who just hates working because it isn’t the case. Not having a job right now makes me happier but because of the experience I had in my last job. I want my work to make me happy and at this moment I feel that being able to work for myself would make me happy.

Thanks for reading!

  1. If you want to go for it, then do it. If that’s your dream, just pursue it. Kirsty didn’t have a job and went entrepreneur. Life is short, make the most of it! Good luck! xx corinne


  2. I can totally relate to this! I didn’t have much luck in the workplace so decided to leave my job and study for a masters instead. I dunno if I’ll use it yet but just needed to get out of employment and do something different. Life is too short indeed. Good luck with your business, hope 2018 is an awesome year and you achieve everything you want to! 😘 xx

  3. You go girl! You’re turning a situation that is causing you stress and unhappiness into something incredibly positive, and you get a round of applause from me for that! I totally agree that unfortunately not everybody can love their job, but in no cases should anyone have to put up with a working environment or job that seriously negatively impacts their mental health! Looking forward to hearing about where winging it will take you!

  4. Good luck! You’ll learn a hell of a lot. I can relate to being afraid of falling into the wrong job… I’m on the hunt right now and my last one was prettyyyy unpleasant by the end.
