The struggle is real for a start up business but I’m not going to go into the details. I want to talk about what keeps me going.  

When I need that extra “oomph” to continue to take actions to bring my dream to life, I contemplate my current situation and why I’m making the change. I not only reflect on how unhappy I am in corporate america I reflect on the steps I’m taking to fix it. I visualize my destination of Brick City Pets and I feel it.  It may not be a straight path but the goal is clear. When all the hurdles and roadblocks pile up on me I think about my two options: 

1) do nothing, accept my current status 

2) keep it moving, push through, make it happen 

I can’t imagine choosing option 1. It gives me shivers to even think about  living the rest of my life or at minimum the rest of my working career doing something that I no longer enjoy.  

So really ,, I only have one option. Brick City Pets here I come!!!!
