Some might find us crazy for wanting to escape Corporate America, but those of us sane souls know that working our tails off in new-age indentured servitude isn’t living; it’s called dying a slow death while living a meaningless life.
See if the following questions relate to you. Are you:
Lacking hope in this day and age?
Hate your boss, the company you work for, timeclocks, screw overs, poor upper management, politics in the workplace?
You get that sick feeling when headed to work and that stressed feeling heading home?
You might want to say screw this rat race once and for all but you’re stuck at this job for reasons only you know. Maybe you’re living paycheck to paycheck and can’t afford to lose your sole income source. Damn, that’s a scary as hell thought.
But did anyone ever tell you there’s a way out?
In fact, it’s far more straightforward than one thinks and no, I’m not some scam artist about to tell you this undertaking’s easy or else I’ll be lying my head off. But I will tell you that it’s possible as hell to Ditch Corporate America and throw your soon-to-be old workplace the middle finger someday.
Wouldn’t that be nice?
Bam! Bridge burned, but you don’t care because you don’t need them these days.
So, what are some awesome reasons to burn that bridge and Ditch Corporate America once and for all?
Well, let’s take a look below and if you find these reasons appealing, then why not start this journey today?
Fire Your Boss
Wouldn’t you love to storm into work one day and hand your boss their pink slip in front of your soon-to-be ex-co-workers? Well, in the age of the internet people are doing this every day, so hey, why not you?
Why can’t you start an online business where someday you’ll make enough dough to fire your boss?
There are so many cash flows waiting for you on the internet, like affiliate marketing, dropshipping, freelance writing, selling digital products or even physical products, the list is literally endless and continues to grow.
Do yourself a favor and start talking about what you love. Like, online.

Screw the Timeclock
Don’t you hate clocking in and being indentured to the timeclock five to six days a week?
Dude and Ladies, nothing is more annoying than slaving away for someone else and on someone else’s time.
Honestly, how many of us like clocking in?
Yeah, very few of us, unless you were conditioned from a young age the only way to earn a living was to get a job and make someone else rich while you scrapped the bottom of the barrel for pennies.
Do yourself a favor and start thinking outside the box. When you have the moment of epiphany, you’ll be ready to begin and question why you were ever subservient to a timeclock and company that would replace you in two seconds if you died tomorrow.
Earn Passive Income
What’s passive income?
Passive income is money you can literally make in your sleep, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, three-hundred-sixty-five days a year.
Sound too good to be true?
Well, it isn’t because you still have to put time and dedication, and when I say time and dedication, I mean you need to be treating this gig like a real job, not just a little side hustle you’re trying to create for yourself. Three clicks to cash doesn’t work and anyone telling you different is a conman.
So, create that product, or join that affiliate network. Learn how to start a blog, and damn it, start working toward making passive income for yourself.
Truth is, it’ll take about a year before you start to see a dent; a few months if you hit your keywords and learned SEO properly and fell into the right niche, but persistency means you’ll be yelling, “YOU’RE FIRED” to your boss and setting fire to that bridge most wouldn’t dare light a match on.
Make Yourself Rich
You have one life to live and you’re working in some normal job for working or middle-class compensation to make some CEO rich who probably has a few lodge buddies in Washington and further lodge buddies at the state level?
Come on, now, we live in an age where anyone, literally anyone, can get rich if they put their mind to it, an opportunity is better now than ever before.
So, why’re you wasting your time making those at the corporate offices, many of whom probably have spoiled brats for kids who will likely blow that money in the first place and tank at their job that they’ll get because of their name and status, rich?
These people are spoiled enough; it’s time to do yourself a favor and make yourself some hard-earned money your way, on your terms, for the long haul.
Again, in the age of the internet, you’re CRAZY thinking that you should work long-term for a company and make their already rich deep pocketed upper management rich. Start doing something you’re passionate in today.
Examples of Such
Yeah, you’re looking at one example here at Ditch Corporate America; I built this entire site on the Wealthy Affiliate platform and in the short time I’ve been here at WA, I’ve only seen my sites grow by the month.
But, while DCA is my hub, I have two other niche sites with one on the way; my hybrid Lord of Columbia Series blog is about my own book series, which are digital products I sell on Amazon and other major book retailers. I also talk about influences behind the stories, which I use books and other products to promote on the site as well via affiliate marketing.
Then, there’s the Helmet and Jersey Stop, where I talk about my obsession with NFL aesthetics, from helmet to jersey to logo history of all thirty-two NFL teams. It’s my original niche site that I started back in 2018 and has grown, sometimes in large numbers, ever since its humble beginnings as a .SiteRubix site.
So yeah, it’s kind of nice to talk about what I’m passionate about and it’s freaking awesome when one of my articles hits the first page on the Search Engines, which also helps with organic searches as well.
You can only lose in this endeavor if you let yourself. Setbacks will happen. Obstacles and road blocks arise, but if you have the heart of a lion looking to trample the serpent (that snake boss of yours), you’ll proceed and you’ll move mountains.
Remember the book ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go?’
You might want to give it a read, because that, my readers, is definitely what will happen to you when it comes to building your niche sites and internet marketing dynasty. Yeah, a freaking dynasty and a seat on the throne awaits, but all great Kings had their challengers and they triumphed.
So, why can’t you do the same?
Instead of saying, “Why me?”
It’s time to start saying, “Why not me?”
So do yourself a favor and fire that boss of yours, showing them that you don’t need their company anymore, and throw their benefits (bribes) back in their faces.
