I am not sure how you got here but first things first, thanks for clicking and thanks for reading. However you got here I bet you and me have something in common….
I’m a 30-something male, based in the UK. I have a loving partner and wonderful daughter. I ride a motorbike. I love pizza. Pizza is the best.
You might be thinking “I have literally none of those things in common with you”, or maybe you aren’t; or maybe you have all of the above in common with me (which is a bit freaky, but hi, other version of me). That’s probably true – but that’s not what I was talking about.
I bet, like me, you feel unfulfilled. I bet, like me, you find yourself dreaming of a way life could be different. I bet, like me, you are at least a little frustrated with how things turned out.
I would also bet that this blog isn’t the first thing you have seen, read, watched or listened to on a journey to address these feelings. Unfortunately, I very likely have even less answers than those other things you have looked into before. That is kind of the point of this blog – I am starting on a journey and want to learn and address these things – you get to come along for the ride.
So hi, I’m the Struggling Wantrepreneur. I have an average paying, boring and ultimately unfulfilling office job. I have an average car, an average house and go on average holidays. I’m sick of average – I want more!
Undoubtedly, if you are still reading, there is going to be a number of you who are disgusted with what you just read. A partner, a child, a house, a car, a job – “why can’t you be satisfied with what you have got?” or “there’s people out there a lot worse off than you!” – all undeniably true. I am perfectly aware, and very grateful, for what I have and where I am now. Things weren’t always so good for me, just a few short years ago things were quite different, and I am sure that will be a topic for future blogs – it’s certainly too much to go into here!
Just because things are good, doesn’t mean they couldn’t be better. It doesn’t mean I can’t challenge and improve myself. It doesn’t mean there aren’t things I don’t want to experience, items on my bucket list I’d like to tick off.
It doesn’t mean I have to settle for average.
Quite what this blog will turn into (or even if there will be any subsequent posts for that matter!) I am not sure. I intend to move from a wantrepreneur to an entrepreneur, document that journey, talk about some things I have some knowledge of and some things I don’t. Hopefully I can share some tips or useful information with you, maybe you can share too, so I can learn from you.
Look forward to you joining me on this exciting/terrifying journey.
The Struggling Wantrepreneur
