Should I leave my job even though I'm knee deep in student loan debt?

A male United States age 26-29, anonymous writes:

I've been in advertising for about 2 years now. The work load I have have can easily be divided among 3-4 people, my pay is pathetic and myself and a few other workers were harshly reprimanded by our boss a few months ago for something we/I didn't even do and now I'm being watched like a hawk because of it, so being there now makes me feel very uncomfortable and unappreciated even though I am hands down one of the hardest works there.

The company is not doing very well right now but the fact that after all my hard work I was made to feel like a bad person because I tried t implement solutions to better the organization does not make me care much.

I want to leave and start a beverage business but I'm knee deep in student loan debt. I'm doing my best to make a plan to leave but long or short I'll still be leaving with debt in my pocket. I'm not in the mindset to go work for anyone else, I want to be done with that. I've been reading a lot of you-can-do-it books and I feel really psyched to start a business but fear keeps kicking in because of my debt, plus a sick parent at home. What should I do?

aunt honesty agony auntGet out off the mind frame that you don't want to work for anyone for the time being. You are in debt and you need to work so that you can pay that off. I think we all wish we could go work for ourselves and not have to answer to anyone but it is a tough task and one you should only take when you are financially ready to take a risk.

Honeypie agony auntALWAYS have a side job when starting a venture on your own. You can't rely on a new business to take off and be successful from the start, in some cases, it can take a year or even two to get a company on its feets.

So instead of "just" quitting and trying to start a new business, I'd suggest you find another job and work the "beverage business" on the side.

How else will you live? You expect your sick family member to take care of your bills while you play "mini beverage-mogul"?
