    Well, I never ever thought I’d be typing on a laptop in the garage, but here I am.
    Hi everyone. I have been lurking for a few months and finally have the bravery to step up and post.
    I have finally crossed over that line of leaving my teaching job of 22 years to try something new. I’m 46! What was I thinking???
    But I am finding I wake up in the morning so much happier and my kids say I’m not that grumpy anymore so that must be a good thing :). I am still technically working with kids as such but in a different capacity.
    I have started an Agency to promote talented kids aged between 4-16 for work in the Entertainment Industry, such as TV, commericals, film and photoshoots for advertising. I am slowly scouting,recruiting and meeting some wonderful parents and their children.
    I have found that what I love the most of working at home is that the time is my own to do what I think is needed at that time. Being on a timetable for 22 years didn’t allow me to breath. Now I finally can.
    I admire the wonderful spirit that FS allows for sharing and supporting others, so I hope to be able to in turn share and support in return.

    Welcome! Congratulations for taking the big leap!

    It’s pretty nerve-racking taking that plunge into the unknown, but at the same time it’s the best feeling – and so liberating!!

    FS is a great place, and it’s very supportive. You will make some good connections here :)

    Hi Anna,

    I have recently made the plunge just like you.

    All I can say is ‘Enjoy the ride’

    Hi Anna,

    Welcome to the forum, congratulations on starting your own venture.
    Similar background to you, I left my role as an employee that was making me grumpy in my personal life. I’m much happier now.
