So, I've quit my job. At this point, I'm still kind of freaking out about it. I have work that is sustaining me but it still is no where near as stable or long term as my old job.
To be completely clear, I loved my job at High Point. I was a travel agent that helped churches and mission organizations go on short term mission trips by booking travel. It was the best job I've ever had. My co-workers, bosses, and clients were all awesome. The company culture was incredible and I doubt I will ever find that again.
So, why did I quit? Especially in today's world where getting a good job is so hard?
It all came down to one question: "What kind of life do I want to build?"
The life I could have built at High Point was a good one. I would have been making a good income, had stable working hours, been surrounded by awesome co-workers, been in a Christian environment, and would be contributing to the mission of God each day. The problem? It's based in Dallas. When I say based what I really mean is firmly planted. Going overseas while working at High Point wasn't possible and that's okay.
If I want SRM to happen, I have to have work that is location independent so I can keep moving along the Silk Road. So, I had to make the hardest decision I've had to make in my professional life thus far. I quit the best job I've ever had.
What's going to happen? I have no idea. For now, I'm on a strict schedule of work so I can develop a business to work on from ANYWHERE in the world with internet. It's already proving incredibly hard so prayers would be appreciated!
I'm going to work on being more consistent with this blog. So, stay tuned for more! Also, if any of you have any business development advice, I welcome your comments below!
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May he make his face shine upon you and give you peace.
That's all for now. See you next time travelers!
