Have you ever quit a job without having a new one lined up? Why did you quit? Then what happened?
I’ve done it myself once. I was working really hard as a developer, when one seriously under-qualified manager called me unprofessional in a meeting. I stood up, left the meeting and resigned the next day.
Everything worked out fine for me – I went out on my own and became an independent consultant and went on from there to co-found an IT consulting company where we treated people right – and now I make people happy at work :o)
What about you?
I’m working on a new cool project and I could really use your stories about quitting “blind”.
