Leaving the Corporate 9 to 5

Leaving the Corporate 9 to 5:

Stories from people who've done it (and how you can too)

Join our email community to get on the waiting list for early access and bonus resources:

After interviewing 50 people who have left the corporate 9 to 5 to forge their own path, Anna Lundberg has collected their stories in a book that will inspire you with the possibilities that are out there and reassure you that you’re not alone in looking for an alternative.

Although the people interviewed all share the experience of leaving a full-time job to pursue something different, that ‘something different’ that they have chosen has manifested itself in varying ways. The stories include those who have moved into a different sector; gone freelance; launched their own business; created a portfolio career; or taken a leap of faith, not yet knowing what the next step will be.

In addition to the stories themselves, Anna shares her perspective and guidance from her own experience in leaving her corporate job and from her clients’ experiences, drawing out key insights to help you create your own career transition story.
