Decisions

Two options: Do I take Door 1 - job I have no honest interest in for a 40% pay cut or what I was making 20 years ago. Or Do I take Door 2 - status quo unemployment and build business with partner who is super eager to launch? It seems like a betrayal to myself to rewind my salary gains 2 decades back. Advocating for more. It’s 2024 with killer inflation after all. If I do #1 I’ll just end up quitting anyway rite?

Take door #2. Gotta follow the call of the soul at these junctures.

What used to be considered “safe” is phasing out of existence. Do something that only you can do.

You already have decided to take the 2nd choice.

Obviously you do not want a low paid job that you hate when you can at least attempt to do something serious for your own future.

There are always shit jobs.

Why would I take a job that I have no interest in for 40% less? You will have your answer and know what to do.

Before you quit

First off, it’s best to just stay in the dead and job until you find another one so that way you’re not left hanging on a limb. Quitting a job when you have nothing else to back you up can be quite risky. Nonetheless, whatever you wish to do is your choice. Good luck.

No easy answer

Choice will depend on what you can tolerate, and how you’re supporting yourself right now. If you’re hungry or in danger of becoming homeless, you don’t have the same leeway as you would if you’re in a stable environment with enough to eat and pay your bills. If you are, I’d say take a risk and launch your own business. The worst that can happen is that you tried and it didn’t work. Even if that happened, you would have gained a lot from the experience to put on your resume and use for your future. If you’re not able to support yourself well enough to put a roof over your head and food on your table, then you might need to take the safest path for now, even if it means a pay cut.
