Bonus:


Not too long ago, I quit Corporate America, sold my condo, and moved across the country.

In that order. No job lined up. Not a single client on the horizon.


It was my third time quitting a career without a Plan B. I gave everything away and left all my furniture. Just shipped my car.


It was time to start a new chapter. Being born and raised in Hawaii, I had enough of East Coast winters.


So I picked Southern California as my new home.


Most of my life, that is how I operated. One foot in front of the other, rarely in a “logical” order. And rarely in a “rational” way.


What about the previous career quits? Even more spontaneous than the last quit.

As mentioned, I quit my corporate job three times without a Plan B.


Things worked out each time but it was definitely scary times. That's why I created an e-book of all my personal and professional lessons learned along the way.
