So Money - Episode 137

Jeff Steinmann

Founder of Braveau Experts

Did you know that as much as 80% of us get up every day and do something we don’t enjoy for a living? Wow, that number is staggering! I had a feeling that it was high but… not that high. Today’s guest was one of those people just a few short years ago. He dreaded his uninspiring 9-5 existence but did not know how to quit and start something he cared about. He eventually figured out how to leave his corporate career of 15 years and create a lifestyle he craved. Today’s guest is Jeff Steinmann.

Jeff is the founder of Braveau Experts and the author of How to Quit Working. In addition to running a business where he partners with experts to help develop their brand, he hosts a weekly show that features lessons from “freedom fanatics” like himself. Jeff also writes for several media outlets, including The Huffington Post, Lifehack and Elite Daily.

Three takeaways from our interview:

— Big trends in the information marketing world and how to use your knowledge to generate an income

— How to get the courage to leave your day job.

— The impact of growing up with a sense that he’d never have enough money.
