From a nursery teacher to a stylist
“I used to work in a nursery. When parents would pick up their children, they were always surprised by their complex hairdos. 6 months later, I quit to find myself. Now I’m a renowned stylist in my city, I do wedding and evening hairdos, and my schedule is full 2-3 months ahead. I want to thank all my little models without whom this would have never happened.”
“It took me a year to save some money and quit my job. Now I’m an artist and it somehow worked.”
“I’m almost 40, and I used to be a front-end web developer. It was a good job, but the endless full days at the computer really started to get me down. I quit my job 4 years ago to take pretty pictures like this.”

It’s never too late to learn something new.
“I slept through school growing up and worked my whole life in a factory, picking up 50-pound bags all day. Then I quit and entered college. If I can do it, so can you.”
“I decided to quit my job and travel the world to take photos — here’s my #101 favorite photo.”

Changing professions is really scary but also exciting.
“I’ll be 30 next month. I worked in management and law almost all my life, but I long wanted to try myself in the culinary arts. My friends and family advised me against it, so I listened to them and was scared to make this step. And then I realized that every morning of mine started with cursing and nervous breakdowns. Tomorrow is my last working day. Suddenly my CV (I’m applying for the position of a cook) became quite popular, despite my lack of experience. I decided to join a small restaurant where they are ready to hire me. Since childhood, I dreamt of wearing the uniform of a law officer, but it didn’t work out. It really brought me down. So why not try the uniform of a cook?”
“I quit my corporate job and sold my startup. Now I’m launching my first-ever board game.”

Making the decision within one day
“It seemed like an ordinary day, but in the morning, I decided that it was time to change my life. I quit my job, sold my apartment to a real estate agency for cheap, bought new slippers, a bag, and a ticket to Thailand. Now I’m sitting and waiting for my flight. My prestigious work and stability are behind me, and ahead, only the unknown. But I’m truly happy for the first time in 26 years.”
“I quit my job to pursue my dream of reviewing cars. My channel already has 25 reviews.”
A world tour instead of an office
“I quit my prestigious job, sold everything of worth that I had, and went on a trip around the world. After 2 months, I have 8 African countries behind me. Just 6 months ago, I would’ve laughed if someone told me I would be writing this post while in Mozambique. Dreams do come true! All you need to do is take a step toward them. Don’t panic, don’t be scared, and follow the call of your heart. And I think that I found my true love.”
Best comment ever. Should be part of the compilation
Unless he somehow got 3k € for those before tax, then it is not worth quitting over.
I mean, I work as a teacher - that is is 7hour workdays, over 9 or so months. I get paid for all 12 months of the year, provided I promise to Not do paid-work elsewhere during my vacation.
I get nearly 2 months off work during summer to travel or enjoy myself every year, a few weeks here and there during the year and about 2-3 weeks off during new years.
Once the lessonplans and the like are written (you do that Once per subject per grade) it is smoooth sailing all the way to the pension.
diy art is highly overrated. they value their time when it's the product that should bring value. any hobby store could build a mold and manufacture 1000s of these trinkets.
It is impressive how he can turn a boxer engine into an inline 4.
Flipping is not the same as restoring, it just means you make a profit from the transaction no improvements necessary
so you just s#ck off the tit of corporate/government til you die...as a waste of space
