Phil Gerbyshak (@philgerb on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss his path to entrepreneurship. Starting your own business can be tough enough but when you have to figure out how and when to leave your current job can make that final jump even more scary. With Phil, he figured a two year notice would benefit everyone. Two-years?? That little fact fried Craig’s brain but not Phil’s honest and realistic approach to spreading your wings and finally making it on your own. Phil explains how a great employee can make their own terms (you lazy losers just collecting a check…not so much) how to work two jobs ethically (no stealing pens from the supply closet) and how to work from a coffee shop can save your sanity. He also opens up about the loss and strange feelings you get the first few weeks out there on your own. And yet leaving to start your own company can be done without burning bridges and even keeping your current employees on your side. A great guide for anyone thinking about going out on their own but aren’t sure how to leave their current job behind.
Phil also hosts a great internet video podcast call “The Shut Up Show” with his co-host Bernie Xiong, which Craig calls a video support group for entrepreneurs. Check out Craig as he guests on Phil and Bernie’s show to talk about why he got into podcasting and how he shut up (yeah right…in his case it’s just an expression) and just did a lot of strange things in his life.
