Quit your job
You should really quit your job on Monday. Yes tomorrow today . If you are working for a salary or wages and have no equity in the business that is.
And here’s why:
You are living someone else’s dream.
You are exchanging the days of your life to build the vision of someone else. You are not doing what you dreamed about as a child.
The reality is this: once you have a place to live and food to eat, the rest is ego. Chances are you are working in a job just to feed your ego. I know because I was this person for more than 10 years. I had jobs I didn’t like – high paying ones, to buy things I didn’t need, to impress people I didn’t care for.
