In have always created a business concept in theory, as a mere thought and then I started from there, building on the concept, structuring this business idea, making it into reality, reaping the monetary results after which I decided it was time to move on and close or sell the business.
Little did it occur to me, what if, this idea did not succeed, nor that I could not make it. “Just do it, off we go…..!”
This has always been my way of thinking and conducting business. Sometimes I even have 2 projects and businesses running at the same time and I love the excitement!
Back in Italy:
Without my business network and safety net and with my boyfriend leaving early every morning for work (in Italy you are expected to work until 7 pm, and if you are the CEO of the company rather till 8 or 9 pm) I suddenly found myself lonely.
The thought of where to channel my energy, combined with the “what if” I created and built up a business and then having to move again, made me feel stuck and helpless in a way I had not experienced before.
I continued having these thoughts, which prevented me from moving ahead, realizing that I had sold my businesses in the past and moved on making these decisions voluntarily.
What if I was forced to make them!
It was a very unknown feeling for me, and it kept me from starting up again, as I felt “stuck between a rock and a hard place”.
In fact, not true, I did create several “blogs” and online travel guides about Italy, but without feeling inspired to do so.
I did not feel like being the author of a “blog”, nor did I wish to be thrown into the “social media network” arena – yet….
With my new life living abroad, traveling a lot and meeting people from different countries, I realized that building an online business made totally sense. The business would move with me, wherever life would take me and I could get the job done anywhere, any place.
