How to quit your job to start up a business – Brent Daily

Brent Daily on how to quit a job

Brent Daily of Round Pegg

One day when a stoplight turned red on his way to his job, Brent said, “Thank God, that’s another two minutes I don’t have to spend at work.” At that moment, he had a realization: he had to make a change. Brent resigned that day to start Round Pegg, a company that helps other companies create a culture of fulfilled and productive employees. On this episode of the How to Quit Working Show, Brent is going to tell us how he did it. His wife, Andrea, is by his side to discuss how she felt about his abrupt decision to quit a job that was paying the bills (two weeks before their wedding) and start a new business.

What success means to Brent and Andrea:

To excited about doing what I”m doing. Being able to do what you love and enjoy what you do and be appreciated.

About Brent:

A serial ‘intra-preneur,’ Brent has always found ways to create new ventures within existing companies. Brent founded Yahoo! Green and, alongside an amazing team, took it from conceptualization to launch in under 100-days. It remains the most popular environmental site online today.

It wasn’t until failing brilliantly in his last job that Brent fully recognized the pain of being a misfit within a company. Nothing existed that would help him ensure that this didn’t happen again if he were to continue working for ‘the man.’ Enter RoundPegg.

Brent graduated from Stanford’s Graduate School of Business and, at least prior to having two kids, could usually be found road biking through the Colorado mountains.
