    Yeah as the title says I've had an interesting ride with my current company. One of the partners is being ousted within the next two weeks and I'm working on getting out before that happens. It's an environment that has turned into something that I just can't rightly be a part of anymore. I put forward my best efforts in helping build the company since the beginning and now we've created a monster (dramatic, I know).

    So, I'm moving out of the state entirely with no money in my pocket, relying on some skills I picked up along the way, getting involved in communities like this, learning as much as I can, and will begin working for myself.

    Any advice or anecdotes would be greatly appreciated!

    Looking forward to contributing to the community!

    I would suggest that if you have zero savings then strongly reconsider.

    Look for something else to at least give yourself a stable income.

    Have enough runway for about 2 months, moving in with my girlfriend, and going from there!

    I have experience in digital marketing, social media management, graphic design, web development, and accounting mostly.

    Appreciate it!

    I'll most likely pick up at least part-time job once I get to the town I'm moving to.

    Not a good idea unless you got a good plan

    Could be true, let's hope I learned how to curb around that for the next one. Thanks bud!
