I’ll be honest, I can’t wait to say “good-bye” to 2016.
This was the most strange, painful, and surprising year of my life.
People have been asking me why I sold my business, but I wasn’t ready to share the real reason. Someone even said that if people find out about this, they would see me as weak and incapable of running a business.
So as I share it with you, I can feel my throat closing up and my fingers are trembling over the keyboard. But I wanted to share this now – THIS YEAR – so that I can say “good-bye” to it and welcome next year as healthier and happier me.
Here we go…
Although I finally surpassed a dream 7-figure revenue in my business, it came at a cost.
My body must’ve been sending me signals for a while, but I ignored them. Finally, it sent me the worst thing I’ve ever experienced – panic attacks. Real, full-blown, emergency-room-visit kind of attacks I never even knew existed.
One, then another, then weekly.
Not just “think happy thoughts” kind of attacks, but those that make you completely lose control over your body and mind. I was so unfamiliar with panic attacks, I didn’t even know they were a result of anxiety.
So instead of celebrating hitting a 7-figure mark, I decided to sell my business and take a sabbatical.
Today I am enjoying a slower pace life, total freedom and flexibility of my schedule, and the thrill of creating a new business!
And I wanted to THANK YOU…
Thank you for supporting me, responding to my emails, commenting on my blog, and sharing your own challenging experiences with me.
