Which path to take....the worn down, entrenched path...or the road less travelled......

No, I’m not going to stop travelling forever, just for now. I started this “ManicGypsy Self discovery through travel” blog in December 2010. Wow, that is almost two years ago! Did I discover anything about myself? Yes! I discovered that although I love to travel I wasn’t equipped to live at a standard of living (in other words on the street) that my current finances were dictating! I learned that being a “hobo” without purpose was not as rewarding as I may have thought. Wow, it was almost two years ago today that my life took a drastic change…From being a homeowner, living on beach front with a common law of 17 years, working a 9-5 job to being a renter, single and unemployed. Is it any wonder I am a little depressed?...No doubt, making a huge life change is scary, terrifying, petrifying…but I suspect regret may be worse.
I needed to travel. I needed to learn that although a lot more travelling is still on my bucket list, it wasn’t enough. So now what do I do? Hmmm….
The one other thing that I have always thought I wanted to do but was too afraid was to have my own business, be my own boss. So, it’s decided. I am going to give it my all. I am going to do whatever it takes for me to create a sustainable, successful and profitable business, permitting me to work when and wherever in the world I choose. A business that will provide me with a comfortable living doing what I enjoy….work that has meaning, helps others and requires utilization of my unique skills set.
So how do I do that????? Hmmm…I am about to find out… and with that…the name of my new or rather continuing blog…manic gypsy’s entrepreneurial journey!
