Some of us have dreams beyond our 9-5 jobs. Some of us would love to walk away from our good government jobs and start our own businesses. The daily grind of being a working dreamer can be tough. I am an IT Project manager and I really want to be a social entrepreneur. I want to change the world with the use of technology and social media. I want to work in the community daily and change the lives of the people that need help the most. I want to be a Career Dropout with a purpose and a plan that will allow me to be an innovator and a servant leader.
I try to hustle everyday and live by this motto: “Utilize the career to leverage the DREAM” – Kanika Tolver
The Career Dropout Movement: Career Dropout is a cultural movement for fearless individuals who’ve amassed dreams and passions beyond their 9-to-5 jobs. This movement is inspiring, liberating and creative, because so many people have suppressed their dreams in the name of conformity, stability, expectation, and financial gain; usually based on their pursuits of career attainment, or the need to build a solidly unyielding and fiercely competitive reputation.
If you could be a Career Dropout, what business or idea would you love to implement?
If you were able to walk away from your job and start a business what steps did you take?
