Mike Lewis found himself at a crossroads when he was 24 years old, feeling unstimulated working in the corporate world but too scared to quit. Eventually, he decided to take a leap of faith and started a company called When to Jump, a platform for people to share stories about departing from their comfort zones to pursue happiness.
In the video above, Lewis opens up about feeling dissatisfied with work -- a feeling far too common for many Americans -- and how he found the strength to follow his dreams.
When to Jump is a curated community featuring the ideas and stories of people who have made the decision to leave something comfortable and chase a passion. You can follow When to Jump on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and learn more about the Jump Curve framework here. For more stories like this one, sign up for the When to Jump newsletter here.
