Hi Fastlaners,
I reached my f**k you moment and i'm considering running away from my corporate job in one of the big consultancy grinders...ehm firms!
I'm currently studying russian for pleasure and i'd like to start doing russian translations on sites like Upwork to earn some money while dropping out of work (man, already too many "Is"!).
I know it's not entrepreneurship, freelancing would just be something to boost my income mostly for pleasure and starting to breathe while i produce some entrepreneurial idea.
Also, another thing i would like to try is to be a seller. Again, just for the sake of measuring if i'm up to the task, not as a life work.
Keep in mind that my father passed away recently and i will be soon be able to invest a decent amount of money to live without worrying too much about it.
I wonder if that sounds like a plan to you or if i'm missing the point of the fastlane.

Welcome aboard. Nothing wrong with freelancing as a Fastlane start, but at some point, you need to break time's noose.
