Hey, thanks for doing this.

More of a general startup question. I think one of the big things stopping more people from leaving salary and trying to go off on their own is just how stable salary seems.

How did you financially prepare to go out on your own? Did you all set aside months of savings before taking the plunge? Did you have something else that paid the bills?

Thanks for doing this AMA and I'm looking forward to your answer. :)

I actually planned this before I quit my job completely. As mentioned, I have started to open stores selling backpacks of major brands in the world. When the income from there was enough for me to prepare for my project, I started switching to part-time work and gradually full-time before my office officially opened.

So it wasn't a huge switch for you and you eased into it. Makes sense.

Thanks for the reply!

Unless OP created an account 9 years ago and seeded it with a post history in California-related subreddits (which seems unlikely) it's not an alt.

Not everything is a conspiracy bro.

Nor is everyone as interested in tearing down an AMA.
