I’ve been writing mostly about social media marketing & how to start a small business as of late. But the reason behind why I work like I do and am creating a mobile lifestyle is so I can pursue my truest passion, which is writing. Who knows, I may be awful at it.. but I’ve written over 100 pages of short stories in the last three years and I am sick of waiting for ‘one day’ when I’ll have all the time and money in the world and I can get my writings published. Screw the man and the horribly hard process of getting published.. I am just going to publish it myself. Here on Escaping the 9 to 5, because fiction is another thing that helps me escape and makes me smile.
I just turned 24, have NO corporate or classical biz experience and am entirely self taught. For years now I have read every business book & downloaded hundreds of hours of podcasts on internet marketing. I dare to say I know more about general business, online marketing & being successful in a virtual marketplace than most of the middle managers twice my age with two kids and a Volvo.
Today all over the country & the world people are quitting or getting canned from jobs they’ve slaved at for years. And then tomorrow, or the next day (depending on how long their savings/unemployment pay lasts), these same people will go out to search for another job like the last and repeat the whole vicious cycle over again.
Well, I for one am not one of those people. I escaped.
