The power of following others

Who was the first person to go from corporate to freedom?

I guess we’ll never know, but I’m not sure it matters much.

Firsts are important. They help to convince others than it can be done. Did you know that within 3.5 years of Roger Bannister breaking the 4-minute mile, 16 runners also broke a record many believed could not be beat?

However, what I think is really important are those who follow. They make it easier for others to do the same.

If you don’t know what I mean by the power of the follower, check out this amazing video below. I don’t know why, but it puts a chill up my spine every time I see it. I admire the willingness of one person to say, “To hell with it, I’m going to do that too”, and what it can trigger.

Over the next few weeks, we’re going to share with you the stories of a few people who made the decision to exit corporate and start their own businesses. They’re just ordinary people, with one slight difference. They made the decision that they would follow their passion and build their dream business.

Hopefully by sharing their stories, they might just inspire you to follow
