Is It Right To Quit A Job You Dont Love.. Please Help by Kolasola: 7:04am On Jan 13, 2018
Got this job week ago.. but every day of working there seems to come with this feeling of emptiness in me..
And at a point I was considering the unthinkable...
You may not understand I'm coming from a family where entrepreneurship is the way of life .. and everyone is really doing great .. so this has always unconsciously made my mind to be carved with the mindset of "I can't just work for anybody"
But here is the problem .. I barely started this a week ago and this is my first Job .. though my skill is something I can sell any where . Was about closing yesterday when I got a text from a long term client to do some Jobs for him ..which ordinarily my work wouldn't have permitted..

I already decided to quit and go on with my former independent way of making money and trust me I really was doing good though the money wasn't consistent..

I already told my family.. and I'm really happy I took the step personally...

Matured nairalanders I will love to know if anyone had once been in my shoe.. and have I done it right?

Since you have other means of survival, who cares about love for job? Money is the deal

Bros, do not become a slave in another man's establishment when you can manage yours.

Do not listen to people with little or no ambition who tell you to remain in a comfort zone called paid employment, majority of Nigerians are frustrated because they are in that zone. If you have the means and the passion to do your own thing, do it

It is better to fail at the early stages of doing your own thing and eventually succeed than have a false sense of comfort fulfilling another man's dreams

It is not wise financially. But you would not be able to make a career out of it because you can't put in your best in what you don't like

Even entrepreneurs started as an employee. Learn what it takes before you venture into it

I'm having that same issues too. I find it hard to work as an employee, at least for a long period. I once got a job to week as a locum pharmacist but quit that same day because I felt totally useless there. I'm already very used to working for myself. Good thing I have a skill that's keeping me from being broke.
