How many of you are building side hustles to eventually move away from corporate life?

The opposite - everything I know is corporate bs & I’m stuck in this forever. Half joking ofcourse.

Yep.... Totally not tech related either.

I am. I can't handle corporate life. I'm naturally creative so this lifestyle isn't really my jam.

I've been preparing myself to leave my cooperate job for some time now. Idk I just feel like life is full of wonder I hate how I spend it in front of my computer screen.

I passively invest in multifamily syndications. On my way to completely replacing my W2 income with passive income from real estate

I honestly think a lot of people’s depression and mental health issues are because they don’t have some kind of side hustle. I like my job, but I wouldn’t want to do it forever

I side hustle just because I like it. I don’t think the opportunity to leave is my primary driving force though.

I do digital art on the side. It might be more for my sanity rather than any great plans on leaving corporate life behind,

I have no idea? I like to create/run networking/education groups, and so I feel like I could turn that into consulting or sales if I were more diligent.

Probably not leaving though. Not without the financing where I feel safe to just walk away.

Hi Tax Bowl - I’ve recently started looking at LinkedIn opportunities due to low morale, EY Technology, and a baby in 2020. Wanted to get a few opinions on jumping ship - Tax Manager 2, in a pretty manageable group with mostly 45-55 year round. I think I’ll get an offer this week from a large private company - has a brand new international tax director from public and I would be a sole tax manager over domestic with the goal to insource provision and compliance from a service provider. Thoughts?
