Lisa, I’m leaning toward “no risk no reward” by “taking a leap of faith” similar to the success story of John White with his company https://socialmarketingsolutionsllc.net/. It worked for me in my early 20s when I received a political appointment from President Bill Clinton and worked in the White House. Thus, perhaps lightening will strike twice.
As those sayings go: If you never try then you will never know. And, the saddest words are ‘what could have been.’
However, I still have a couple of years left in my current day job performing public service for the U.S. Government until I’m retirement eligible.
