Yesterday I made one of the scariest decisions I’ve made in a while, up there with my decision to leave college or move to Seattle. I gave my notice without having the safety net of a new job to land on. For almost two years, I’ve had one of the best jobs in my life, reporting to one of the smartest people I’ve had the opportunity to work for. My life is more stable than I could have ever imagined a few years ago. Yet, once again, I make the leap into uncertainty. I’m anxious, but really excited to see what the next year brings.
This post has been in the making for years. This isn’t a recent itch that’s crept up on me. If I’m honest, it started the day I sat in my uncle’s office creating a Cool Boarders 2 cheat code website on Angelfire when I was about 11 years old. Ever since then, I’ve had a passion for building stuff. My family nurtured this. I was effectively groomed to be an entrepreneur one day.
Building something of my own has always been the goal. And I ready to go after it.
I didn’t think it was going to happen this year, and it almost didn’t. After returning from London, I was approached about a job that would move me to London. I absolutely loved London. I spent days emotionally struggling with the idea of uprooting my life and starting over, once again.
It didn’t work out. That’s a good thing though. The event helped set the emotional groundwork to help me do something that scares me. Starting my own business.
I don’t have anything to announce yet, but it should be coming soon.
I am accepting clients. Feel free to get in touch here. I’d love to talk to you. Or you can just email me at justin [at] justinbriggs [dot] org. I’m looking forward to doing client work again.
I’ll also be writing, and hopefully presenting, more than I have in the last year and a half. I love writing, so I’m looking forward to having more to share.
