Oly & Dea Graham
I was a senior consultant for a firm in Dallas, Texas. I did not agree with the business model - I did not think it was 'upfront' in addressing client needs. It sat on me...
Finally, I had had enough and quit - telling the owner I was going to do this better - not his way.
He is now out of business and we are 23 years strong. Best decision I ever made. Of course, I had to tell Dea I was jobless and starting a business on Monday morning - while we were sitting at a poolside celebrating my birthday with the last $400 I had to my name. And as I was finally telling her, having put it off all weekend, my pager rang - a client. I went and called them and explained I no longer worked for the firm. "Great! Can you take over Monday?"
