I left “cubicle nation” a couple of weeks ago because I couldn’t take it anymore. I hated the job, the mentality and the bitchy colleagues. I had always seen it as a transition as that job had nothing to do with my purpose in life, it just paid good money which I needed to pay for some courses. I was planning to stay for another year but it became psychologically impossible.
I have this dream of starting my own business, I have a couple of exams soon for a certification that will give me credibility and I will be finally able to change industry. My website is up, I am building a mailing list and designing some online products, positive feedback so far.
Yesterday I received a job offer. Previous industry, good money, and better working hours, therefore now I have doubts. I know it takes time to build a business from scratch, therefore accepting could be a good solution to have a steady income while I sort things out and create some products, but I wonder if I would end up in the same situation as before (depressed, no motivation to work on my project after work etc.). The other option would be testing products and ideas for the next 3 months and see what happens.
Any advice? What would you do?
