Leaving bootstrapper life to be an employee again

Hi Bootstrappers,

Do you ever think about closing down or selling your business, and becoming an employee again in someone else's company?

Do you wonder if it is even possible, and whether your entrepreneurial experience has made you unemployable?

This you'll want to listen to this week's episode of Bootstrapped.

While I take a break, my co-host Ed chats with John Ndege, a former bootstrapper, about how it feels no longer being one’s own boss.

John launched and grew a product, and he ultimately sold it. Afterwards, he went back to being an employee, working for a large corporation. Ed and John discuss the advantages and frustrations you might experience when you choose the path of going back to work for someone else.

In or near London? Interested in joining me for a Bootstrapped mini-meetup in central London on the evening of April 6th or 7th? Let me know by replying to this email!

Listen to this week's episode of Bootstrapped.fm.

Until next time,

Steve McLeod
