“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” – When Harry Met Sally
This quote has always had a special place in my heart – not just because that’s what I have wanted in my Mr. Wonderful, but because I believe this is true of any wonderful in your life.
When you find it, you just want to be with it.
I have my Mr. Wonderful, but I have grown tired – tired of waiting for the rest of wonderful to appear and tired of looking in the wrong places and trying to make a corporate relationship work. I know in my heart that it’s just not for me.
I have big ideas and have been flirting with a career shift for a while now, but I’ve been scared. I’ve been gripped by the fear that I’m simply not good enough to make those ideas work and I’m terrified of the impact it could have on me and my family if I make the wrong choices.
But it’s time for me to take a risk and put myself out there and start making the move from the full-time corporate world to starting my own business.
Oddly enough, pursuing my professional wonderful looks an awful lot like the steps I took in pursuing (and keeping) my Mr. Wonderful after being “off the market” for a while.
And it doesn’t start until you simply take first step and put yourself out there.
Throughout this book, I will introduce you to women (and men) like us who have felt like there is more wonderful out there for them. They have taken a risk, put themselves out there and created a long-term love with their passion – and have even made money doing it!
After all, “When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life doing something, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
