Quitting your job is a big decision and it doesn’t always lead to the perfect outcome—at least not immediately. Most people think that you have to be miserable or make very little money to want to quit a job, but even high earners still find themselves struggling to attend their nine-to-fives. Pat Hiban is the perfect example. He quit during his prime even as he was making a high income and after owning his own company. Regardless of all the respect, responsibility, and ability to make phenomenal income, it just wasn’t enough for Pat.
You may be feeling the same. Maybe you’re daydreaming about multifamily investing as you sit at work, or picturing the perfect vacation rental property on your commute. Whatever your reason, quitting might be the best move for you to make, but only if it’s the right time. Don’t worry if you’re struggling with decision fatigue, Pat and fellow quitter Tim Rhode just came out with their newest book, “The Quitter’s Manifesto: Quit a Job You Hate for the Work You Love.”
In it, Pat and Tim give stories and tools that will help you on your path to building wealth while leaving a job that you hate. The resources you’ll find in this book are exactly what our very own David Greene used when deciding to quit his highly lucrative, but mentally draining job as a police officer. If you’ve been sitting on the fence, not knowing the next step to take in your career, this book may be exactly what you need.
