“Sometimes you gotta say ‘What the f***,’ make your move.” – Miles, Risky Business
A few weeks ago, I left Fox Business, where I’d written two columns every week since 2012. I had a great run there – loved the people, the support and the editorial freedom – but there had been a lot of changes, the folks who brought me on are long since gone and the situation just wasn’t working for me anymore.
It’s not the first time I quit a profitable gig and faced the great unknown, and I doubt it’ll be the last. Sure, I’ve left a lot of dough on the table, but what’s more important, money or happiness and fulfillment? Sometimes, you’ve just got to say “WTF,” do what seems right to you and have faith that everything will work out in the end. So far, it always has, and I’ve been around a long time.
Of course, I am considering other “columnist” opportunities, but in the mean time, it’s good to have a break, chill out and catch up on stuff around my property. I also have more time to work on a new book project (more on this later) and to blog here. If you’re a fan of my writing and haven’t subscribed yet, now’s the time.
