Just do it!
Since making the decision to leave my job as a deputy headteacher to become a coach in education so many people have told me how brave they think I am and that I'm an inspiration. I draw on these comments when the fear of going it alone hits at 3 in the morning and I sit upright in bed and question whether I've made the right decision. However, when I wake up in the morning and look in the mirror, I know for certain that the woman looking back at me can absolutely do this, is already doing it. I'm making my dreams come true! So if you're out there, scared to death to take the next step and stride out on your own, believe in yourself and do it.
