Current Business: Entrepreneur on Fire
Kate has been such an inspiration to me, I consider her one of my virtual mentors.
There were so many things I wanted to talk to her about, but when I really thought about it there wasn’t a doubt in my mind what that was. I’ve heard her talk about her “journey” over the years, but she shared a lot of details in a post she wrote on her blog Why job security is BS (and how to leave your 9-5) . This is a topic near and dear to my heart. I know a lot of the listeners feel the same way and want to figure out how to do it for themselves.
Kate was like a lot of us. Climbing the corporate ladder and then figuring out that letting someone else be the “master of her destiny” was not the way she wanted to live her life. When she became self aware to the fact that being unhappy M-F in order to be happy on the weekend was just crazy. She walks us through her process:
Phase I: The Decision
Phase II: The Preparation
Phase III: The Leap
The Escape Plan
Everyone’s story is different so we talk about different ways to form and execute a plan to leave your 9-5, which I now refer to as the "Escape Plan."
We also talk about how she dealt with friends and family who didn’t understand entrepreneurship. That negative inner voice that some of us suffer from a.k.a "The Impostor Syndrome" (who am I to do this).
Do you agree that job security is BS?
What's holding you back?
Are you ready to put down on paper your “Escape Plan?”
