Should I quit my job?
This is one of the hardest questions for potential small business owners who are walking the tightrope between growing a side hustle and keeping their day job.
If you find yourself in this precarious situation I want to recommend the book Quitter- Closing The Gap Between Your Day Job & Your Dream Job by Jon Acuff.
Quitter, is the clearest and most authentic book I have read on this important subject.
Jon, has a simple writing style that is engaging, humorous, and packed with real life applications.
"All to often, we hear that dreaming big means you quit your day job, sell everything you own, and move to Guam. But what if there were a better way?"
“Quitting a job doesn't jump-start a dream because dreams take planning, purpose, and progress to succeed. That stuff has to happen before you quit your day job.”
In the book Jon asks...
"What if you could blow up your dream without blowing up your life?"
"What if you could go for broke without going broke?"
In Quitter, you'll find practical solutions to help you balance the tension between your dual roles, be exposed to common pitfalls of quitting to soon, and be confronted with questions you may not have thought about.
If you are struggling with the decision to quit your day job or continue working for a while. I recommend that you read Quitter first.
