In this episode I talked to Andrew McConnell the founder of Rented.com about why he quit his career as a lawyer to pursue a sudden idea all while eating lunch with his family and friends! We have all been there. Every once-in-awhile we get hit with a crazy idea and start to think that it can be possible to do it, without even thinking it through and the next thing we know we are quitting our jobs and becoming full time entrepreneurs! Well… it’s not that easy and it wasn’t that easy for Andrew either. It took him almost 5 years from the time he had the idea for Rented.com to actually execute it and put it in motion.
