Folk often ask Why I Quit GOOGLE & Venture into ENTREPRENEURSHIP? I have preferred The Difficult Road of Entrepreneurship over the convenience of corporate America.

On 30th October 2018, I resigned from my job at Google to start my own business. Yes! I am Omar Itani, an ex-Googler.

Let me share with you how to quit a job and start your own business.
As much as I loved my time in Google, my decision came down to this: I was way too deep into my comfort zone.
Life was just too easy — free breakfast and lunch served every single day, seven restaurants to choose from, an entire gym three floors underneath me, a swimming pool, a dentist, a laundry service, a barista brewing your coffee, two kitchens on every single floor.
My role was no longer challenging me either and I wasn’t learning anything new in my day-to-day tasks — I completely lost the thrill.
I figured I needed a change in scenery and some time off to shake things up a bit.
So I did what I thought was right.
I quit.
I said I was done. I was not scared to quit the job and start a business. Leaving corporate America to start my own business was not a difficult decision for me.
And just like that, I handed in my resignation, packed my bags, and booked a flight out of Dublin. That’s how I venture into an entrepreneur.

I wasn’t too sure what I wanted to do after Google, but I knew this: I was approaching my third decade on earth and my heart was itching to finally try and start something of my own. That’s why I was leaving a career to start a business.

I wanted to build things and test out my ideas.
I just wanted to start, and stop talking about starting one day.
