3 Reasons To Quit Your Job And Start A Business

I talk a lot about entrepreneurship and starting your own online business…

But I’ve never really talked about why I went this path instead of getting a job.

I’ve only had 1 job in my life and it was a part-time thing while I was in school.

I worked at Toys R Us…

And I like to think that me leaving was the reason they went out a business.

It’s possible…right?


It wasn’t the worst job in the world but definitely coulda been better. I learned 2 big things while I was there:

  1. Getting a $0.18 raise per year didn’t get me excited.
  2. Dealing with customers was one of the worst things I’ve ever done.

Working a job does have some benefits…

  • Only work 8 hours a day.
  • Benefits.
  • Paid vacation.
  • Easy work.
  • Etc.

But the fact that that’s what every single one of my classmates was working for, didn’t sit right with me.

I didn’t want to be average.

I didn’t want to buy a house, go to work every day at 7 am, and have 2 weeks vacation per year…

I didn’t want to dress like everyone else and do the exact same thing every single day.

I wanted to be my own boss and have freedom.

I knew the 18 cents per year thing would improve working for other companies but if I wanted to get to the income I wanted, I’d have to work 20 years to get there.

No thanks.

I needed to find something where my income comes from the results I generate and I wouldn’t have to deal with people coming December 24th looking for their must-have talking Elmo.

And guess what?

There are countless opportunities out there where you don’t need a job…

You don’t need a degree…

You don’t need money or investors…

You can literally start your own business online for $0.

It’s not gonna be easy. That’s one thing people get wrong. It takes a lot more work than sitting behind a desk, but it’s definitely worth it in the end.

It completely baffles me when people work 2 jobs to pay the bills when they could start something online and build it up to something that doesn’t take much maintenance.

But I know working for yourself isn’t for everyone…

It’s a lot of work. A lot of stress, and a lot of ups and downs.

I just know it’s not for me.

I want to make a bigger impact and actually create something for myself.

I want a challenge and I want to enjoy my early years.
