Thank You Kanika!!

January 12, 2009

I received this kind note of encouragement last week and just had to share with everyone!! What makes this all the more special is that it’s from a woman I don’t even know and have never met.

“I do not know you… The reason I am writing is because I was inspired by your JumpedOffTheLadder.com page. I too, have “jumped off the ladder” as well and having been where you might be I wanted to let you know…you will be OK! As with anything you will have good days and bad days but stay encouraged and remember why you made the choice. As money became tighter and tighter I remember second guessing myself and wondering if I had done the right thing but I am now a successful business owner and I have time to be at home with my young family. My current idea of success is not what I necessarily had in mind when I made the decision but it is more than I ever imagined! There is so much value in doing what you know you were meant to do. I wish you much success in your journey!

I hope Kanika’s success will be of encouragement to you as it was to me. Especially if you’re thinking about “jumping off the ladder” too!

Check out this article from CNN. Looks like I’m not the only one jumping off the corporate ladder.
