Episode 3: Leap of Faith
by Charlie Epstein (comments: 0) |
What’s risky and what’s not? In our third episode of “Killing Retirement”, entrepreneur Josh Latimer had it all. A successful banker’s position with JP Morgan Chase, a lovely wife and a baby on the way. Why, then, did he think it was the perfect time to take a leap and start his own window cleaning business? (His own mother wouldn’t even talk to him for a whole week afterward.)
Our guest: Josh Latimer
Quote of the ‘Cast: “I just decided that I couldn’t live like that. I left that job to start a window cleaning business, which is a very weird business. My own mother wouldn’t talk to me for a week; in fact, she was so upset because in this traditional mindset, it’s so risky to do this type of thing. It’s such a huge leap, but through a series of mentors and people that invested in my life, little by little I built a really, really nice business. For me, I’m not passionate about window cleaning, but I was passionate about lifestyle. I was passionate about being intentional with the time I spent with my wife, and the time I spent with my children, and having some flexibility in the way that I would do stuff with my day.”
