For those of you who have followed this blog for sometime, you know that I moved from corporate employment to self-employment several years ago.¬†During that time, I’ve had the pleasure of working on both contract projects as well as helping to co-found and build¬†8BIT.

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by The Pro Guide on what it looks like to quit your day job.

Quit Your Day Job - The Pro Guide

What’s It Like To Quit Your Day Job?

During the course of the interview, I answer the following questions:

  • How does collaboration and product development happen?
  • How did Tom dive into the world of startups and self-employment?
  • What tips does Tom have for people starting their own businesses?
  • And more!

I also discuss a little bit more about what it’s like to work for yourself as well as what it looks like to build product within the context of a smalI startup.

Additionally, I talk a lot about how 8BIT works, what our process looks like, how we handle internal conversations and hold each other accountable to our tasks even when it’s hard.

Finally, I talk about what pushed me over the edge and moved me into self-employment and startup mode as well as things that every person should consider prior to jumping ship from the daily 9-to-5 to starting their own business.

Head over to The Pro Guide, check out the interview, and let me know if you have any other questions or comments!
