Recognize your wake-up call
Craft your exit plan
Research your next career, and have fun doing it
Create your own dream job

“Oh, you hate your job? Why didn’t you say so? There’s a support group for that. It’s called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.” ― George Carlin (also attributed to Drew Carey)
Sadly, this isn’t far from the truth: most people don’t like their jobs.
According to Gallup, 51% of people are not engaged at work. That means half of all working adults aren't happy in their so-so, vaguely tolerable job.
What’s even worse is that an additional 17% are actively disengaged, meaning they hate their jobs. We think these statistics are nothing short of tragic, and we want to help.
If you’re in either of these camps, but you’re ready to make a change, this course is for you. We’ll help you transition to a career where you can:
Be respected and valued for the work you do
Get paid what you’re worth
Use your natural talents for what you were meant to do
Have more flexibility, time, and freedom in your life
Help others and make a difference
Background and Overview
A few years back, a disgruntled flight attendant got on his plane’s public address system, shouted some profanities, and exclaimed: “I Quit!” He then grabbed two beers from the beverage cart, deployed the emergency evacuation slide, and dramatically exited the plane in style.
While it likely felt good in the moment and made a splash on social media, he faced a host of negative consequences including arrest and a $10,000 fine.
It was certainly a memorable way to quit his job, but if you’re looking for a more fulfilling career and life, it’s not the right way for you to do it.
With a simple-but-powerful five-step plan, and a collection of real-life stories of people who sought a better life by leaving an unsatisfying career, How To Quit Your Job provides everything you need to prepare for your grand exit.
Lessons are both educational and entertaining, and we put an emphasis on production value, so you’ll be engaged and delighted as you go through the course. We’ve avoided giving you busy work while providing enough action steps and quizzes to help you make real progress.
We’ll get you out of the rut you’re in, help you focus on what you want to do, and lead you right up to quitting day. From there, you’ll be ready to fly.
Who this course is for:
- This course is for anyone who is unhappy in their current job and considering a change. The big idea is that if you want want more freedom, money, and/or fulfillment in your career and life, you can start taking action today by following the steps you’ll learn here.
- Students will be guided through an evaluation of their current situation and their best options for career change. They’ll gain clear insights into the various logistical, mental, and emotional considerations that go into leaving a job.
- The course is divided into two main sections: a practical five-step plan for getting to your quitting day and a collection of real-life case studies to provide extra inspiration and motivation.

We provide business education that equips you to impact your community and change the world.
Under the leadership of Danny Iny, we offer two in-depth training programs to help you build and scale a profitable audience business, based on two paths to success—either building an audience first and then launching your business, or developing a course first and then scaling for growth.
But here’s where we differ from most other training organizations: We’re educators first. Here, you won’t be given access to your training and left to figure it out on your own. You’ll be assigned a personal coach who will walk with you, reviewing your work and answering your questions for as long as you’re active in the program.
So no matter which path you choose—and whether you’re an experienced marketer or just starting from scratch—you can achieve massive success in the time frame that makes sense for your life and business goals. We’ve helped thousands of others do it. We can help you too.

Danny Iny is the founder of Mirasee, host of the Business Reimagined podcast, best-selling author of multiple books including Engagement from Scratch!, The Audience Revolution, and Teach and Grow Rich, and creator of the acclaimed Audience Business Masterclass and Course Builder’s Laboratory training programs, which have together graduated over 4,000 value-driven online entrepreneurs.
All of this grew out of humble beginnings; he started out just like most online entrepreneurs, with an idea and message to share, and no idea how to do it. He made several wrong turns – which he calls “plot twists” in the Audience Revolution – before really understanding the Audience First paradigm, and how to apply it to online business.
And when he did, it was like lighting a match to a fuse. Back in 2011, he started Firepole Marketing with less than nothing; he had no traffic, no subscribers, no relationships with any influencers in the industry, and over a quarter million dollars in personal debt, left over from his last failed startup.
In just a few short years, he’s transformed Firepole Marketing into Mirasee, grown the business to multiple-seven figures in revenue and a team of almost 30 people spread all over the world (including his talented wife) on a mission to support very special global community of over forty thousand loyal and inspired entrepreneurs.
Danny has maintained a passionate commitment to learning and transparency, freely sharing lessons learned from great successes, major challenges, and even his personal life to support the online entrepreneurial community as a teacher, speaker, angel investor, and advisor to many of the top leaders in our industry, who have Danny on speed-dial when they need help with their business or strategy.
