Meet Graham – The Man Behind the Mission

I’m Graham, and I want to take a moment to share more about who I am, both inside and outside the world of career development. At the heart of I Want To Leave My Job! is a personal history, a set of experiences, and a collection of passions that drive the content and advice you’ll find on my site. My journey hasn’t been a straight line, but rather a winding path through various industries that has given me a wealth of perspectives.

If you’re curious about what lights me up, well, I have a deeply-rooted love for the experiences that the world has to offer. Eastern European cities, with their rich histories, and the striking landscapes of Scandinavia have a special place in my heart. Prague, with its timeless architecture, holds the title of my favorite place to visit.

Closer to home, I find joy in life’s simple pleasures. Watching my cats pounce on a new toy brings a smile to my face, and there’s something incredibly rewarding about watching my nieces come into their own, showcasing unique personalities that are as bright and varied as any storybook character. And speaking of stories, nothing quite compares to the thrill of getting lost in a fantasy novel; I’m a proud fantasy nerd. Anyone who’s dived into the worlds of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Wheel of Time’ knows the escape and reflection that such tales offer.

The home I’ve built, the garden I tend, they’re tangible reflections of growth and personal development, and it’s within this space that I draw inspiration for I Want To Leave My Job!. These personal joys serve to remind me, and hopefully you, that life is about cherishing the present, cultivating the positive, and letting go of the negative.

My professional road has had its fair share of twists and turns. I’ve held roles that were simply a means to an end, such as the times I served as a voice on the phone in a call center. Even when the fit wasn’t quite right, I learned valuable lessons and refined a skill set that I carry with me today. More significantly, spending over a decade as a debt advisor has equipped me with insights into the stressors and satisfactions of the workplace. It was in that role that I truly understood the importance of feeling aligned with your job.

I Want To Leave My Job! is a reflection of my life’s philosophy: to build a place rooted in positivity, where we can all seek and find fulfillment. It’s why I speak from experience and from the heart, because your journey to job satisfaction mirrors mine in many ways. We’re in this together, and as we transition into the next section, it’s about showcasing how my experiences have shaped a platform dedicated to your career development and advancement.

Building Bridges in Career Development

Let me take you back for a moment. In truth, my own career path has been a bit of a mosaic. I wasn’t always the person advising others on job satisfaction and career progression. There was a time when I was the one needing that very advice.

You know, I’ve held various jobs, and while some were fleeting encounters, others left a lasting imprint. I spent over a decade as a debt advisor, a role that I took seriously and from which I gained a wealth of understanding about people’s lives and the impact of career choices. It wasn’t just about the numbers; it was about helping people find their footing in times of uncertainty.

Unfortunately, I’ve also known the inside of a call center all too well, serving as a voice on the line, often feeling like a small cog in a big machine. I’m good at it – there’s no denying that. But we all reach a point when we know that our skills outshine the work we’re doing, and that’s when change starts calling.

I Want To Leave My Job! isn’t just a brand or a website; it’s the echo of that very call for change that I heard – and one that I believe many of you hear too. It’s about recognizing when a job no longer serves us, not merely in the financial sense, but critically, in the fulfillment department.

My pivot away from the call center headset towards the creation of this platform wasn’t an accident. It was a calculated leap, fueled by a desire to do more and be more. To share my learnings and to empower others like you to seek what truly gives them satisfaction and joy.

So, here we are at the crossroads of our career journeys. My mission – our mission – is clear. To lay down the bricks that build the bridge leading to work that’s satisfying, enriching, and aligned with who we are and what we want to be. I Want To Leave My Job! is my footprint in this space, and it’s steadily paving the way for many more wanderers, questers, and explorers in the realm of career development.
