I was 35,000 feet in the air coming back from a month in Miami, where I had been working alongside the last ever person I would call ‘Boss’ (except the wife, obviously!).
Deep down he was a nice guy.
However, as a boss he was a terrible, micromanaging fiend from hell. To the point where he would receive a copy of every email I received – sometimes even replying as me – ridiculous, right?!
After that month with him, I’d simply had enough of the BS. I wrote my resignation letter on my laptop and when I landed in Hong Kong for my connecting flight, I hooked up to their brilliant free wifi, and hit ‘Send’. Never looking back.
A month later I launched my business, and it’s still operating now with over 200 employees and have expanded into two different verticals, too.
