I got an email from a reader last week with the subject line “How to Start Over.” In it, the reader shared his personal story: being about 10 years into his career, balancing life with kids, a family, and a big corporate job, all while trying to establish his own digital platform and business—and feeling like it’s time to break free and change things, but feeling overwhelmed by the idea of “starting over.”
He brought up a point that I’ve been confronted with many times. I wanted to share my response to his email, with one overwhelming preface: You’re never “stuck.”
As much as it may feel like you can’t get out of your current situation, as much weight as you put on the importance of maintaining your nine to five, as much fear as you have of disappointing your family—regardless of your current situation and regardless of your age, you’re never ever stuck.
