Now that I’m debt free and have saved a few months rent- all I want to do is quit my current job and leave the rat race now. I currently hate the work I am doing, and I feel like my skills are wasting away. It’s amazing how free feeling it is to be about of debt!
I haven’t felt this liberated since I was a child… so since the last time I had no debt. Huh, funny how that works.
Anyways, on top of that, I recently just broke a milestone and am earning a few dollars each day without doing anything through affiliate marketing on another small site I run.
The only reason I haven’t quit my day job is because I only have a few months of rent saved up, and I should really have at least six. Also, I currently make $300 a day at my day job- my passive income revenue is $3/day. I need to improve that. I am also looking to save money to make a down payment on a rental property early next year- which I hope will add another $50-$80 dollars a day depending on the property.
However still, I can’t help the feeling that I am just doing the wrong thing in life as far as my career goes and it’s bugging me. Don’t get me wrong, I love technology and coding- I just don’t like the industry. I was happier contributing to research in college and internships rather than supporting corporate applications. Following my anniversary with this company, I may leave the 9-5 sooner than planned to pursue other options later this summer.
It may take me a little longer to save up with a smaller income, but I think the peace of mind will be worth it. We’ll see what happens.
