As a technicality, I actually left my entire business behind once. I left BMD to be a full time digital wizard at Sony Music, and I was really damn good at it. Unfortunately, I hated getting up at 7AM every day to go work in a box, so I didn’t even last a year. While I was there, I made some websites, did some email campaigns, sat in some meetings, and worked alongside the most talented people in the music business. More importantly, I learned that I was capable of doing the biggest jobs, for the biggest record label in the world — which helped me realize there wasn’t much I couldn’t tackle. While I was doing those jobs, I learned something important about myself – I only want to work for myself, because I don’t think like an employee. I think like an entrepreneur.
