So I was thinking about what you were saying and it is possible to break away from your 9 to 5 job. As we discussed on the phone there is no magic bullet to do this but a lot of hard work. As you know it has been a long struggle for me to get to where I am and I have read several books on the subject of how to break yourself from a normal everyday job. Here is a listing of those books that helped me out greatly.
Habit Stacking by S.J. Scott
This is a short read that I think is a good place to start. It teaches you how to make small habits that will help change your day to day life. Such as reading only 10 mins a day, then slowly ramping it up to the point were you could read for over an hour and not realize it. Because you are steeped in the 9 to 5 world I would say this is a good start. You have to slowly train yourself to take on entrepreneurship habits instead of trying to jump right in.
The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau
This book I found to be a great way to renew hope in leaving your job to work for yourself. In this book he goes over companies that started for as little as $100 bucks and grew to being real power house. Chris Guilebeau also has another book called “The Art of Non-Conformity”. Which I have read several times. That book is more so a play by play of how he left his job at Fed-Ex to becoming this guru on how to break away from your current job to find real independence working for yourself.
