Its been my dream ever since i was 16 to be self employed to be my own boss and run my own business and earn my own living with out having to rely on an income from another company.
Nearly four years ago now i set up a dog walking business that consontraits on walking dogs that need one to one walks, for dogs that find it difficult to be around other dogs.
Ive known for a long time that dog walking essentially in my business as i only walk one dog per hour that it is very volatile and if i lose a client that hour and income is lost.
By November this year i was walking 33 dogs a week and all so working nights in a doggy hotel. Burning the candle at both end was killing me and i knew deep down that i just wanted to consontrate on my dog walking. So i handed in my notice to my evening job and was given the chance to go straight away.
My dream was in sight and i was feeling excited about the prospect.
Unfortunately anxiety had its ideas and wasnt going to let me go cleanly. Within an hour of resigning panic struck me down and gave me its two penence worth. As much as anxiety hit me and even though i felt terrible after the attack, i wasnt going to let anxiety win. So i pushed through and carried on with the plan i wanted to do.
Sorry anxiety but i control my world and if im going to do something then i will.
