I’ve been known to encourage people to leave their 9-5. But, for the sake of full disclosure (because the only rent I’m covering out here is my own), people tend to initiate these conversations with me when they kind of already want to quit their job.
No one who is happy in their job seriously entertains the thought of leaving. So, if you’re here right now and you’re reading this, this is for you.
Everyone isn’t meant to run their own company, but everyone is meant to be happy. Decide what you want your life to be and make it happen. You have much more to gain than you have to lose.
