06: "Knowing When to Jump" with Mike Lewis

For most people, there comes a time in their career where they find themselves wanting something different, but unsure of how and when to make that jump. Mike Lewis found himself in that scenario when he realized that once you're an adult working full-time, it gets harder and harder to cut loose and follow your dreams. This led him to consult hundreds of people who made big jumps in their careers (and came out alive), ultimately leading to Mike's own jump from Corporate America to a stint as a professional squash player and most recently, Founder/CEO of When to Jump

We typically only see the highlight reels of peoples' careers, not the "10,000 unsexy steps" that it took to get them there. In this episode, Mike and I get into the unsexy steps of his career path, and he leaves us with great advice on how to know (you guessed it) when to jump.
