I’m in a place right now that I’m guessing a lot of other entrepreneurs find themselves in at some point — the in-between stage. This is the stage where your last company has failed/sold/gotten away … whatever, and you’re floating around aimlessly trying to find a higher purpose. You’ve got a half dozen ideas running through your head, but nothing concrete enough to get you excited. You’re still a bit connected to the last thing you were doing and can’t quite shake the last turd from the hole.
This is where I’m at right now and I’m not sure what to do.
Smart money says get a job or a freelance gig until the next thing feels right, which is fine, but not the answer. That’s just an extension of the in-between stage.
I’ve been here before, but this time it’s different. It’s more then the next paycheck, or the next idea. It almost feels as if it’s time to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Only, I am grown up.
Lately I keep coming back to the question of what I’m in search of — fame, money, legacy, etc., but can’t seem to figure out a way to find the answer. It seems to me that until I can find the answer, whatever I do next is meaningless.
First world problem, but this seems like the place where those kind of problems are accepted.
Anyone else go through this?
