The Future for Entrepreneur Andrew James: Helping Others Leave the 9-5

What are some of the biggest sacrifices you’ve made to get to where you are today?

I had to stop caring what others thought about me. I gave up my college friends, fraternity, and time with family. I gave up a stable career path as an engineer to chase this crazy dream. I dealt with a lot of judgement for it, but I had to learn to set that aside and not take it personally.

What drives you to keep working hard each day?

I’m not here to earn more money. That’s not what gets me moving in the mornings. What keeps me going is the desire to live my best life. I want to experience everything I’ve ever dreamed of. I also want to be a symbol of what’s possible. I want people to know that you can live your dreams and achieve everything that others tell you that you can’t. You can do all of this while also being a good person and without sacrificing your values.

Is there anything exciting you’re working on that you’d like to share?

I’m launching a new software company. I’ve got an amazing team in place, and we’re going to help a lot of people all over the world break out of the 9-5 rut with a new way of earning money online. I’m really excited to bring that to life.
