#escapemanifesto preview: Fight fear

Doing something different is scary. Quitting your job is scary.

Starting your own business is scary. Having no income for a while is scary. Changing jobs is scary.

Taking a point of view is scary. Cold calling is scary.

Public speaking is scary.

Being challenged is scary. Managing people is scary. Saying no is scary.

Being in it for the long run is scary. Talking to aggressive journalists is scary.


By now, you’re probably aware that we wrote a book (you helped!) and we’re excited to be really close to the final publish date. The Escape Manifesto (#escapemanifesto on Twitter) is the book behind the movement and is here to support, inspire and encourage us all to make big and brave transitions in our lives. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing snippets on this blog.
