Mate good for you! Well done. I think once you start working for yourself it is harder and harder to work for someone else. I'm also in the early stages of planning my own promotional marketing (my current industry) company which will have a crossover in to the cycling industry, that I hope to have up and running around March next year, it will be a full time gig. Just the thought that not having a boss and running your own show full time is not far away, is what makes it easier to get up and leave your family every morning to go to work for the man.
Mate, it is a virtual one way ticket. Although most entrepreneurs plan B involves reverting to employment if the venture flops, generally, they wont ever go back, because the new ventures usually open up new opportunities.
Romp, that was a gutsy move. Congratulations for taking the decision to pursue your dreams, and may you live long and prosper!!
