When my brother and a good friend both lost their professional jobs over social media posts, I decided to join EXIT. America’s largest employers don’t believe in free speech in any meaningful sense, and anyone whose public self can be construed as offensive (basically everyone) runs the risk of losing their income or becoming unemployable. EXIT is a community that equips men with the resources they need to provide for themselves and their families, without remaining beholden to a set of focus-group approved, superficial values. I’ve met mentors in my chosen field, who have helped me make progress towards self-employment because we value freedom and autonomy, for ourselves and each other. I’ve seen job offers extended and the EXIT team regularly meets to help members develop plans for their own professional development. If you’re not satisfied with where you are now, EXIT.
I joined EXIT after learning that I was at risk of being doxxed. I was able to be join one of EXIT’s hot-seat sessions, which not only gave me tools and resources, but helped me feel supported at a time when I desperately needed it. My association with EXIT has been overwhelmingly positive, and it has been critical to my efforts to exit a suffocating corporate environment and find real independence and freedom.
I joined EXIT after hearing about it on Twitter. I was losing my job over a vaccine mandate, and I was trying to find the right next step to continue providing for my family without compromising my personal beliefs. In the end, I decided to start my own web development and digital design firm. The EXIT community has been a tremendous support, from offering advice and brainstorming on a “hotseat” group call, to offering personal connections to potential clients, to providing emotional and spiritual support as I make the transition through my own personal EXIT. I’m a big advocate for the group, and I wholeheartedly believe in the vision.
I joined EXIT shortly after starting a freelance business. At the time, the business was my main source of income, but was barely making enough to pay the bills. By networking with EXIT members, I set up a number of new partnerships that addressed some of my biggest pain points. I was placed in the ‘hot seat’ and we brainstormed some tactics and strategies for growing the business to a sustainable level. The advice I got dramatically improved my competence and confidence in business development. I attribute the unprecedented growth I’ve experienced since then directly to the goodness of God and the value of EXIT’s brain trust.
