I Quit Show by Shopify: All About Aspiring EntrepreneursJill Quash
Two words. Sometimes two simple words are the only barrier between you and your dreams. “I quit” is a phrase or action that some people daydream about and others courageously do to end their job and begin afresh. The I Quit show by Shopify embodies just that: aspiring entrepreneurs leaving their jobs to grow a business.
Following six businesses for a year, we watch their journey of growth and trials as well as the advice given to them by three successful mentors. As they jump full-time into their side hustles, they find out just how challenging being an entrepreneur can be.
