Most of us are waiting for permission.

We are waiting for the $40,000 piece of paper from the prestigious university to say that we now understand business well enough to start a career in it.

We are waiting for an ‘important’ person with a name tag to shake our hand and say we are allowed to do what we want to do.

We are waiting for our boss to walk into our office and say that we have worked long enough and hard enough to make more money than we were making before he stepped foot through the door.

This is why entrepreneurship, freelancing or doing anything on our own is scary — because once we quit our job and our salary and our safety net we are forced to sit and face the scariest question in the world… who gave us permission?

If I can give everyone reading this one piece of advice, it’s to live your life as much as possible without other people’s permission.

Give yourself permission.
