Presented at RISE Austin 2013.
The rat race is great for some people, but terrible for entrepreneurs. This session will discuss how to bridge the gap between your "day job" and living your dream of entrepreneurial freedom. At the end of this session, you should have inspiration and strategies to implement that will get you closer to that end goal of FREEDOM! Be warned- there will be a lot of tough talk about debt (get rid of it!), commitment (commit to yourself!), and exactly what an employee owes his employer and vice versa.
Peter Keller founded and launched FringeSport while he was employed at another job and he'll talk about how he came up with the idea for a side project, how he grew the side project, and how he finally quit to run FringeSport full time.
We'll also look at never-before-seen case studies of other people who quit six-figure jobs to be their own boss. Plus - we'll discuss resources and communities you can leverage for support when your parents and your spouse think you are crazy for quitting your "good job."
