“Once independent….” – Rodric Leerling

yes, I'm the boss mugAbout 12 years ago, I decided to quit my job and start running my own company. I called myself Sales Power Provider and became media entrepreneur, independent sales guy, sole-trader, or whatever you want to call it. Most importantly, I freed myself from the suffocating business atmosphere I was in then and it made me agile to work on different sales projects at the same time.

But deep inside, I also noticed how important it is to live your life to the full. Not to sit still and wait untill storms are over but when you feel it’s time to go, cut the cord and don’t waste your precious time. Even when you don’t know the consequences it may bear.

And once independent, you get used to running risks, more than when being FTE. It’s like reffing a football game: you decide when to blow the whistle for kick-off, but you don’t know what may follow. Cards, subs and goals; you just write them down, shake hands, report them and move on to the next match.
