[Video] Following your heart, working for yourself and taking the great leap

by Amanda Rappak  |  March 23/2012  |  , , ,

Our visit to SXSW last week was our most memorable yet! We met lots of customers and new friends at our Ranch Party plus got the chance to sit down with some incredibly smart people. We heard from thought leaders, entrepreneurs and talented creative folk who are blazing a trail in the small business world. We’re excited to share these conversations with you as a series of video stories we’ll publish over the next few weeks.

Today we’re introducing you to Elizabeth King; a published author, president of a test prep company, and blogger who offers advice on why following your heart to do work you’re passionate about is something you’ll never regret.

    Super inspiring! I am getting ready to head out on my own soon and am looking for all the positive feedback I can get! I have done it all, other than resign my current position of 14+ years. I incorporated, grew my client base and am proudly using Freshbooks… now to take the leap! Such a nerve wracking moment. Wish me luck :)

    I really enjoyed the video, thank you!!

    Hearing Elizabeth’s story today is excellent timing for me. Friday is my last day at my full time job; after 3 years of working insane hours I will finally be able to focus 100% on my projects.

    If you need a custom marketing or sales video let me know!

    This is very motivating! It makes me 2 steps closer to the edge of making the plunge.

    I quit my corporate job on Monday. I cannot describe the feeling of freedom that makes me so happy.

    Nice video and I agree with Elizabeth that for me too writing a blog has not only been enjoyable but has also created opportunities I may never have otherwise realised.
