Yesterday, I met a few friends whom I haven't been in contact for some time and they were shocked I left my job as a well-payed, yet overworked Engineering Manager, to become a solopreneur.
Some people even mentioned that "it's okay to get fired in times of Covid", when in fact the company was in the e-learning sector, which made the business bloom but created an environment where we were constantly getting too much work on our plates.
I love what I am doing now, which includes reading a lot of programming and other books in general, greatly increasing my career capital, but I can't find the right words to explain why this is a good move for me and my sanity.
I just started on my own a few months back and it's going to be some time before any kind of revenue comes in.
If anyone has tips on what arguments to give or has been in a similar situation, advice is welcome :)
