GBL018: One Year After Finally Quitting My Job and Going All In

Get Busy Living Podcast 18

Hello again! It’s been way too long. I apologize for the month gap between episodes 17 and 18. No excuses from me except that being overseas and out of my normal routine made it tougher for me to find time to do a podcast.

Now I’m back at home and ready to get back to doing what I love, which is podcasting! Since my podcast started in January, it has been downloaded now over 100,000 times! Thank you to each and everyone one of you for listening. I appreciate the emails I get from you and that’s why I love podcasting.

Today’s episode is about my one year anniversary of quitting my job and deciding to go all in with my online business. I’ve been wanting to be my own boss since my mid 20’s, but couldn’t figure out what type of online business to start.

Even when I did start an online business developing iPhone apps, I didn’t quit right away after I tasted success. I stayed at my job for another 1.5 year after the release of Photo 365. I was waiting to see how much I would be making consistently from apps. If my income equaled or surpassed my monthly paycheck, then I would quit.

However, it never did. It was frustrating because I was so ready to quit my job. I hated going to work. I hated feeling like I was wasting my time there. Time that could be used towards something more productive. At least doing something I enjoyed more!

So last year in June, I made the decision to quit my job before I was financially ready. It was scary. I was going to live off of whatever I had in my bank accounts and hoping I could increase my online income very soon.

I talk about 2013, what I did, how I went through a low point, and how the year turned out.

I mention three pieces of advice to help you if you’re in the same situation as I was.

(Note: I just realized I mentioned saving $100 a day if you know you want to quit your job. I meant to say $100 a month. More reasonable.)
