I was a Marketer for a great tech company. When I first joined, I loved my job. I was learning a lot, I was passionate about what I was doing and about growing. Some of my coworkers who had been there for 10+ years already sort of just trudged around and laughed at my eagerness. I always wondered what their deal was.
After the first 2 years went by, my passion started decreasing a bit. Things started to get a bit repetitive and my passion all but disappeared. I would still excel at what I was doing, but it just wasn't as rewarding.
Now I felt exactly the same way as my experienced colleagues did back when I first joined. Everything seemed to get stale: the coffee, the building, the work, the projects, the environment.
Yeah I am still considering about leaving the company to have a start-up. But wondering if it was just a sudden boredom that made my mood down. Yeah it is just my little introduction for the reason that I signed up for this forum.
Point being, start a business if that is what you want to do, StartupNation can help you get there, but clearly identify the risks of doing so and have a detailed plan ready before quitting your job and forfeiting your income source for a while.
Let me know if there are any specific articles from StartupNation I could point you toward.
