Episode 76: I QUIT My Job

Nicaila Matthews Okome_Side Hustle Pro

A year ago, I made the decision that I need to work for myself. Today on the show, I share how I spent the last year gearing up for my quit day.

I got laser-focused on monetizing my content.

I explored multiple revenue streams.

I got busy learning to be a sales team of one.

I studied, I worked, I tried, I failed, I stayed determined.

And then, on November 29, 2017 – I QUIT.

On today’s episode, I share:

  • Why I’m betting on myself!
  • What went into taking my leap of faith
  • My plan to move forward

  1. Wow ! Congrats! I’m really happy for you! You worked really hard and you deserve a job that you love! I love what you do, I adore your podcast, your work is truly inspiring! You got some guts to push your podcast, I’m trying to do the same thing with mine, but I’m not sure I’m doing the right things! Anyways, keep it up !


  2. Wow! This podcast episode was right on time for me. What’s crazy is that I decided a year ago that I need to quit my job also. I even posted a date on my calendar. I got nervous and didn’t stick to the exact date. However, I finally made the decision and my last day at work was November 29th!

    There were so many good points that you touched on and moments when I felt like you eavesdropped on my thoughts. 🙂 I’ve also been inspired to keep pushing on this new journey of entrepreneurship. Thank you so much!!

  3. Congratulations on your courage and intention with this new unfolding of your passion. Thank you for sharing all of your learning and process here with us. Sending you love and light for this moment and a peaceful 2018!!

  4. I am quitting my job because you told me to! Joking joking! Thank you for saying what many folks do not say. So many people who THINK they want a business just want a more chill j-o-b. No shame in that. Clocking in and getting paid no matter the average effort works for some. Yet some don’t get how to generate money based on one’s own hustle. Many people do not like the idea of Sales yet wonder why they aren’t profitable.

    Thank you for speaking to how you choose to invest in learning how to get better at Sales! You also shared about taking control of generating revenue vs waiting for random saviors to drop money from a magic place right into your Paypal. I love your reality-based approach.

    Thank you for speaking to the fact there is an actual process behind revenue generation.
