Top corporate dog to entrepreneur - please help
Didn't study much (boring) but am typically top of the class at work and come up to speed extremely quickly.
Saying this not to boast, but just to give you a picture of who I am and what I've done. There's more but that's a little glance.
So I work hard - very hard - much more than my colleagues because I care about the work, I care about quality, I care about professionalism. Most of my colleagues I noticed don't do the work but any time anyone senior speaks, they say the "right stuff". I'm tired of the corpoate game, as good as I am, I do it based on blood sweat and tears. I don't suck up to anyone - I'm valued for talent and outcomes - that's it. I say hi to the cleaner and treat everyone well. I don't "say the right thing". I do the right thing and don't try to get credit.
These days I think why I am working so hard and doing so much more than others when I can put my extensively tested range of skills to earn money for myself. I would say my skillset is stakeholder relationships, strategy, management, communication skills, very smart, can execute flawlessly, excellent planner, project management, analysis of data, kind of very broad skills.
And this is where I falter - innovation. I have worked for so long in mega big companies earning good money and doing things for the top guy that I don't know how to step sideways.
Can anyone please help me with the flaws in my logic, or ideas on how to even start building that bridge.
