Laurel Staples on How to Resign from a Job

Listen to the interview here:


Is the corporate life working for you? Is it giving you everything – I mean all the things you want out of life? If not, you’ll want to listen to this episode of the How to Quit Working Show with Laurel Staples. She will explain how she left her corporate engineering job (designing printer parts) to start first a retail store and then Go Fire Yourself!

Laurel is going to share with us the ways she has had to change the way she thinks, acts and how she views the world to become a successful entrepreneur.

Don’t get me wrong, I like money and I like beaches, but I want to make a contribution to the world.

Laurel’s Definition of Success

Success is being able to do what you want to do and when you want to do it. To be able to wake up every day and be creative, work on the things I want to work on and enjoy the simplicities in my life. To have an internal sense of joy that comes form the inside instead of the outside.

About Laurel

Laurel Staples did what everyone does. She did the “responsible thing” and got an engineering degree and found a job in corporate designing printer parts. It didn’t work. So she did something different. More about Laurel.

Being an entrepreneur is stepping outside of your comfort zone every single day.

    I was listening to this podcast but after a couple of minutes it was all static. Is it just me?
