TLS #107: Quitting a Full-Time Business For More Joy with Melissa Gruntkosky

TheLivelyShowwithMelissaGruntkosky

How many times have you heard a story – here on the Lively Show or elsewhere online – which goes along the lines of, ‘I didn’t like my job… so I worked really hard and quit my job to start a full-time business’?

Though this narrative has been shared by many people online, there are also many times when quitting a full-time business and getting a full-time job is an even truer extension of our Values — and ultimately brings even more joy to our lives.

This is exactly what we’re talking about with letterpress designer, Melissa Gruntkosky. Melissa had a full-time business for four years, until she followed her intuition and took a fulfilling full-time job instead.

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to hear an important (and less spoken about) perspective on the challenges of running a full-time business and an inspiring journey of someone who made a bold choice to live her Values.
