How to Quit Your Day Job & Build An Empire 

By Administrator | 24 May 2016

"It's time to take your life into your own hands. Have you got an entrepreneurial spirit but no idea where to start with launching your own business? Don't worry, neither did I. In 2014 I was working a 9-5 job that drained every ounce of my creative energy. I knew something wasn't right when I started getting serious cases of the 'Sunday Blues' for about 3 months straight. About midday on Sunday my partner would notice that I would be snappy, withdrawn and I started complaining about serious, ongoing headaches. I noticed that I would get this sick feeling in my stomach at the thought of having to be up at 5.30am to catch the 6.45am train. I would sit for an hour on the train, half-staring into nothingness, get off in the city, trek for 20 minutes in my uncomfortable work wear, skull my coffee en-route and eventually sign in at my desk job by 9.00am. After 3 months of misery and complaining to everyone around me, I realised that it was my own responsibility to improve the quality of my life. With pure determination to free myself from the rat race, and a deep passion to surround myself with like-minded passionate people, I began plotting my escape. It took me 4 months of long nights building my website, hustling with bosses and contacts, and a lot of harsh advice from relatives and business professionals for me finally leave my job and officially launch StartUp Creative. Fifteen months later I am sitting at the outdoor setting in my brand new home in Casuarina, writing this recap. I realised this morning when I was driving home from the coffee shop that I had done it! Today, I have no alarm to wake up to, no train to catch, no time-frame to drink my coffee in, no reception to sign into, no boss to report to, no team meeting to attend, and most importantly no dreaded tasks to complete."
