Amen to most of these! But also realize that you may have to spend a long time doing something that you don’t like in order to be able to take the path that you want. I spent over ten years in jobs that I hated to get to the point where I could start my own business. I used all my savings and left a career that I had worked my up in. I work harder than I ever did and make a lot less money, but it’s the best decision that I ever made!
