Over +1,214 days ago (or +3 years), I was a corporate employee working on things I wasn't passionate about.
Like many of the indie hackers here who've shared their stories, I was unhappy and unsure of the direction my life was taking.
And like some of you, I was laid off from that corporate job that I worked so hard to not only attain, but maintain. (That restructuring life....🤐)
I realized after that experience that the only person who was going to change my life was myself. So I took action. Lots of action.
You can read more about it here where I share what my corporate job was, why I turned down an offer to join Amazon and where I am today:
Although what I make is currently a fraction compared to that job (what I make now is higher on an hourly basis though), I'm infinitely happier and can spend more valuable time with my family. And I would never trade that away.
Thank you so much for reading in advance, this community has meant a lot to me over the years. You guys have inspired me and helped me to learn that there's such a bigger world out there. 🙏
