His boss’s ultimatum only pushed the schedule up, he admitted. Bristowe lunged at her From the vine Podcast about the first time You and Tartick have teamed up. Tartick’s boss heard the episode and told Tartick he can’t do podcasts anymore, no more social media, or any gigs apart from his job in corporate banking.
Rather than meet his boss’s demands, he took a leap of faith — and Tartick addressed that in his new book, The Restart Roadmap: Rewire and Reset Your Career.
Jason Tartick took the leap of faith and quit his job
Tartick told Showbiz Cheat Sheet that Ultimatum surprised him. “I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. Of course, I didn’t expect this ultimatum to corner me,” he said. “I wasn’t really expecting it and it surprised me a bit. And I think, in the back of my mind, I knew there would be a time when the personal world and the professional world collided.”
“Honestly, I was probably about six to 12 months away from proactively taking the plunge on my own anyway,” he added. “At the time, I thought it was a bit earlier than expected. But things happen and you just have to change. And detours can lead to great opportunities. Honestly, I’ve talked about fear being a big reason people get stuck. It was a big reason I was stuck. And sometimes you have to be pushed out the door to get to the next thing.”
He had to regroup after quitting his job
Although Tartick planned to rotate, he still had to think and regroup. “It’s okay to get knocked down,” he said. “That was something I took away from the A-Rod interview. How often in his life was he crushed and humiliated. But how often has he had the highest heights?”
“I think when you get knocked down, that’s when you really learn the most about yourself and get the most information to kind of move forward,” he said. “And it’s crazy how often those opportunities, when slammed, give you the chance to even talk to one person about it. Or possibly many.”
“Without getting as crushed on some of the things that I’ve dealt with as I have, this book doesn’t come about,” he said. “Without taking the opportunity to go on the show, to see some of the best and brightest from Wall Street to unscripted television, behind the scenes, positioning themselves, marketing themselves, negotiating for themselves, quick little ones Preparing one-liners to make it work makes the biggest impact. It’s incredible. And those opportunities lead to new educational things you can do for yourself.”
Jason Tartick offers solid money advice in his book
While Tartick supports the pursuit of professional happiness, he says everyone needs to be mindful of their pivot, especially when it is them comes to the finances.
“The number one thing, if you’re looking for a fresh start and you’re unhappy with your career, you need to create financial independence,” he stressed. “If you don’t, you can always rely on what the system was set up to do. That’s supposed to keep you reasonably compliant in your job, right? The W-2 payment will pay off a little. The carrot will always be there to keep you going, and when you’re burying yourself in debt, don’t plan accordingly. You will never have the opportunity. Or the risk is too high to get the shot you always wanted to get. And you’ll never hit big unless you swing big.”
“One of the things I say to people is that right now they are so focused and get-rich-quick on NFT cryptos,” he said. “Slow down. Back up. Go backwards because if you don’t have a foundation, you can’t build a house. And how you build a foundation with finance is the basics. It’s debt management, it’s budgeting. It’s behavioral budgeting, so go ahead understand what you are spending money on. And the most important thing is to negotiate on both sides where to make money and when to spend money.”
