Friend of the show and Entrepreneur on Fire John Lee Dumas (@johnleedumas) joins us to address a common concern of a lot of people have about leaving behind a miserable corporate job to pursue entrepreneurial ambitions.
If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Now, let’s dive in!
On This Week’s Feedback Friday, We Discuss:
- You’re at a new job and they’ve already pegged you as the “quiet” one. But what do they really mean?
- How do you find a tribe of like-minded, growth-oriented people who don’t seem like they’re part of some motivational cult?
- After so many “we should hang outs” without follow-ups, should you just accept that a best friend isn’t in the cards for you at this point?
- With a full-time job, supportive girlfriend, and research papers taking up most of your time, how and where can you find opportunities to grow your skill set?
- You’re young, successful, and ready for a relationship — but you can’t seem to find anyone whose drive goes beyond Netflix and work. Where should you be looking?
- You’re good at chatting when given interesting subjects to talk about, but have no skills in coming up with those subjects. How do you create meaningful conversations from scratch?
- You’ve got a great job and a comfortable lifestyle, but you regret never finishing college or following your intended career path. Are you a fool to go back to school?
- Even though you know the entrepreneurial life is right for you, how do you politely convey to your well-meaning but kind of clueless friends that you’re not looking for another corporate job?
