Entrepreneur Issue, Editor’s Letter
Step Outside your comfort zone and hold your destiny in your hand.
January 2012 I had just turned 34 and was nursing my third daughter. That would be my 6th year in UK as a stay at home mum. Being someone who had always worked before I got married with so many dreams to fulfil, I became restless. One thing was sure, I was not going to go back to Nursing, my career for the past half decade. This was a clear agreement with my husband from the onset. He knew I was never going to practise my profession in the near future.
Faced with deciding on my new career in a new system was going to be a great deal. I had nightmares. The thought of my venturing into a new career gave me different types of feelings. From fear to excitement to anxiety. The road looked bleak and at the same time rosy. It was certainly going to be a huge leap. And I wasn’t going to leap without looking. I checked all my options.
In the last 3 years, I have been doing a lot of researches, including trying to unlock the power within. I needed to be certain of my self acclaimed talent as a writer and also, I needed to arm myself well with the necessary skills to carry me along with my interest in media. Both were not easily fetched. Having had 3 good years of contemplation and research, January 2012 was the ideal time to strike. I became restless. I’d been writing my blog as a hobby and I knew it had to go beyond hobby this time. I finally summoned courage to let my husband into what I was planning. To my surprise, he became even more excited than myself.
