It’s been nearly 3 crazy years since I put in my two weeks notice and left the 9 to 5 once and for all. It was a crazy time in my life as I had just bought a home, but was completely tired and drained of working for someone else. I knew I had to escape the 9 to 5 and I was determined a few months earlier to put the steps in place that would allow me to make it a reality.
Over the last 3 years, I’ve built a consulting business that last year did more than $250k in revenue. I share the figure because I want people to know that I’m by no means on the level of Mark Zuckerberg or any of the folks on Shark Tank but that I’ve reached a point financially that I’ve been able to live life on my terms. I’ve been able to make investments into projects I’m passionate about like HustleAndGrind.co and GetCrate.co.
Looking back over the couple years, it’s been filled with highs and lows.
I wouldn’t change it for the world and I’m thankful that I’ve been able to grow and have great people around me. If it wasn’t for my clients, partners, family and friends — I would likely have burned out many months ago and not be writing this post. So thank you…
For anyone who is stuck in the 9 to 5 and is looking to escape, I just published a guide called The Hustle Manifesto that goes a bit deeper into some of the ideas I’m going to share in this post.
It’s not just a guide, it’s a resource pack filled with stories, email scripts, challenges, webinars, and clear insights that I’ve gathered over the last few years. Check it out while it’s available at a limited time price.
Alright, let’s get to it…
