What kind of change are you looking for? Career, relationship, fitness, health... it really doesn't matter what the change is. What matters is that you are ready. There is nothing stopping you and it is time to get out the way of yourself. There may be bumps in the road, bumps that take shape of family &
friends, your "day job", money and so on, but shake that off and keep it moving. You may have an off day or two, make sure the third day (or whatever dayit is) to pick back up like you never took a day off. Have faith and it will pull you through! You know that thing you want to do... you just have to start.
I have been researching and the biggest concept that resonates with me in my previous attempts to freelance is that, you can't chase the money. You really have to love what you are doing and put the time in before the money comes. Another concepts that is huge is that you should always work with people who have the similar if not the same core values as you do. Lastly – for now – is you should always conduct yourself as if you are where you want to be in life.
A few quick tips:
1. Research and talk your passion.
3. Get around like minded people.
4. Help may be closer than you expect - do a local search. Community boards, YWCA, Libraries, etc.
5. Do not underestimate yourself. You can and you will be about your business!
