Welcome to another edition of ask the readers! Your chance to speak up, get specific help on what you are struggling with, and add value to what we're building here at Pocket Changed. Here's today's question (please answer it in the comments below this post):
Why do you want to be a cubicle renegade?
If you don't typically leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you. If you only leave one comment ever, make it be this one.
I know what my reasons were for quitting my day job last year to be an entrepreneur, but the underlying reasons are different for everyone. Pocket Changed exists to help people change their lives by connecting what they are passionate about with the work that they do. The rationale behind why you want to spend your life doing work you enjoy can be completely different than why someone else wants to.
That's the beauty in it all.
Everything I write here on Pocket Changed is for the betterment of the PC community. The more I can understand about what you are struggling with and working towards the better job I can do to help you on your journey.
This is your chance to tell me why you want to change your life and what you need help with so I can focus my time and effort getting you there.
To get things started, here is my answer:
I have too many interests and aspirations to be contained in a single job description. The freedom and lifestyle I desire doesn't fit into a 6'x6' gray square, no matter how great the pay and benefits are. I can't "fake it till I make it" when I am not passionate about the work I do. What I spend the majority of my life working on must be about more than the company's bottom line; it must change the world for the better.
Now it's your turn.
Please tell us in the comments below. Just leave a sentence or two and use anonymous if you so desire.
So... why do you want to be a cubicle renegade?
