I’ve always been a rather humble person but it’s been taken to an entirely different level since I took a leap of faith and resigned from my job to pursue entrepreneurship full-time.
When I left my job, it was strictly because I believed without a shadow of a doubt that God was making a way for me to live out my dream of becoming a media powerhouse. I had a plan but it was thrown to the wind when things happened sooner that I’d anticipated. This led me to rely 100% on God to deliver on His promises.
I’d never been in that situation before.
I found myself depending on other people for things like money, a place to stay at times, encouragement and to simply be a listening ear or to tell me everything would be OK. I’ve built relationships with people that you couldn’t have paid me six months ago to believe that I’d have a working relationship with. I’ve been on my last dollar (or dime) and out of nowhere, I’d get paid from a project or someone would tell me they’re interested in my PR services or someone would just give me money just because.
