In January 2013, I was accepted into a highly ranked MBA program. I recall it as one of the happiest days of my life. I was finally going to get my career back on track, and find a job that I really loved!
And by that, I actually meant that I would start a business and live the four-hour work week lifestyle. The MBA was going to be the magic bullet that finally “fixed” me and got me the life that I really wanted.
Fast forward a little over two years, and in June 2015 I graduated with $75k in student loans. I had not started a business, and I only had one job offer so I had to take it. Fortunately, it was a well-paying job offer. I am now a consultant.
At that time, I recognized that I had deluded myself into believing that an MBA had anything to do with starting a business. I wasn’t about to give up on my dream and resign myself to a typical high-income, high-stress career in corporate consulting. So, I embarked on a journey to try to fulfill that dream build a business, along with help from Ramit Sethi’s Zero To Launch course.
I started this blog after a year of fits and starts, to document it for my own reference as well as share my struggles with others who may find some value in them.
