Having recently been laid off due to funding, (and then picked up by another company, gratefully!), I will say it’s still terrifying and stressful, but there is also a peace of mind that comes along with knowing I have been steadily building my Beachbody business towards profitable. It feels really good to have a backup plan; to know that in a sea of things I cannot control, that’s not one of them – I can’t be laid off from Beachbody! I’m the boss!
I mean, I was asked if I would go to coaching full time instead of looking to continue my industry work elsewhere, and while I would LOVE to, my financial situation isn’t there yet, and I would hate to go backwards – into MORE debt, instead of waiting until I am debt free and doing it the proper way.
So yes, it is a goal – to someday be the only boss I have, and not be at the mercy of funding, or contract disputes, or anything else. But not yet – for now, I am happily dual-hatted 🙂
