Quit my full-time job!

Ryan Wilson @rywils21

I quit my job a month ago and am just now filling in the milestone.

I've saved up a runway to allow myself to take a year off from working full-time. It's a huge leap of faith but it was time to quit.

In the beginning, it was an emotional roller coaster. From the moment I gave my job notice I was leaving I kept questioning myself if it was really the right decision. I was giving up a ton of money by quitting. One day I would be sky-high about being free from a job only for the next day to be filled with terror that it would be a huge failure.

Zoom to four weeks later and that roller coaster has chilled out. I'm convinced I'm on the right path.

I've been submitting status updates on Pioneer.app. That keeps me in check to continuously make progress. I've been in touch with potential customers. I've been structuring the way I go about things to force me to keep moving forward.

I'm excited for the future! Even if things don't work out, it will be an awesome journey. I'm learning a lot about myself and everything involved in running a business. I'll never look back and wonder "what if I quit that job?"
