Burn the ships and commit.

Quitting my Job to Pursue Writing

Last week, I quit my job to pursue writing. I burned the ships and there’s no turning back…

I have six months before I run out of money and need to fanatically search for a job at a PR agency. But until then, I hope that pursuing what I love — in this case, writing stories to help others––will gain enough traction on Medium for me to justify to myself to keep going.

So what am I writing about and why you should follow me? My writing will focus on teaching you how to become your best self through the lens of storytelling. In other words, I’m going to teach you how to transform yourself to become the main character of your life.

I’ll start with teaching you what makes up main character energy and why it’s important, and then I’ll go into specific topics in areas of relationships, career, and mental health. Each topic will be specific and nuanced enough that you’ll be able to apply it to your life immediately but broad enough that anyone can benefit from them.

So what are you waiting for? Drop a follow, join me on this adventure, and let’s learn together.

The ships are burned. The only way forward is onward. Cue Protagonist!
