21 Reasons Why You Should Quit Your Job — How Many Apply to You?

Contrary to popular belief, quitting your job is nothing like jumping off a cliff.

I like to brag about the fact that I quit my job to go after my entrepreneurial dream 18 months ago. I talk about the day I did it here and the books that inspired me to do it here.

Ever since then, I try to convince everyone I meet to do the same. I even offered a steak dinner at the finest restaurant in Atlanta for anyone who quit that Monday when I presented at ProductCamp Atlanta earlier this year.
