From the Inside Flap
Rob, Dom and Mikey were fed up with the corporate treadmill. When they decided to change careers, they looked for a website to help them escape except there wasn t one. So they started their own. Three years later and they have started a movement called Escape the City. Over 100,000 people have joined www.escapethecity.org in pursuit of exciting and unconventional careers. They are the first online start–up in the world to raise more than £500,000 in investment equity crowdfunding and they did this entirely from their own membership.
The Escape Manifesto is the book that the guys wish they had read three years ago on the London Underground when they were commuting back and forth from their corporate cubicles. It is an inspirational call to action, packed with practical advice and encouragement. If you work in a corporate job that doesn t make you tick and you have ever wondered whether there is more to life, this book is for you. Step off the corporate treadmill find an exciting job, start your own business, or go on a big adventure. Stop dreaming, start planning and do something different!
