The “quit your job” Lie

How to use other people

Just finished listening to an episode of the Suitcase Entrepreneur. I hear Jeff talking, and all I can think is – “what a freaking fraud“.  As if quitting your job is a perfect solution for everything. There were always  people who benefitted from other people’s “pain”. In today’s world, it’s easier than ever. All you have to do is start a podcast or a blog, sell your coaching system, sell your eBooks and sell your webinars. And you don’t even have to look for an audience – suffering people will find you. You just have to sell them “No time to see your family? Quit your job and start your business!” ,”Can’t fly to an exotic island for one-month vacation? No problem – quit your job and start your business!”,”Hate working for other people?! Well, this is your lucky day, quit your job and start your business!”
