Best Factory Job in the Area

Jason Wells, How to Quit a Job.

Jason Wells had a good factory job. In fact, it was the most sought-after factory job in his rural Indiana community. He was making 20 bucks an hour. He played guitar and wrote songs on the side. Whats the problem?

He hated it.

Life is not about ‘stuff’, life is about living.

A Change Comes

Then came the “golden boot”! Jason got laid off from the job. Now with a bunch of “spare time”, Jason decided to put it to good use pursuing his dream of being a full-time musician.

It was going great.

But then the factory called back. The lure of a steady paycheck and job security was too much to resist. Jason went back.

Jason Finds His Mind

Several months later, Jason experienced a major and difficult life event. He walked into the factory and gave his notice, which launched his music career. He hasn’t looked back since.

Just give yourself credit that you can do it.

On this episode of the “How to Quit Working Show” Jason is going to tell us what motivated him make that big change as well as:

  • How he handles the rejection that is a frequent, but common part of being a musician and entrepreneur.
  • The gift he’s given his kids that’s worth more than all the iPads in the world.
  • Simple techniques he has used to launch his music career and get his name out there.
