When Red Badger was launched in 2010, they had a primary aims meeting.
“At that stage, I had no thought in my mind about being a parent,” says Cain Ullah, founder and board member.
Fast forward seven years and everyone’s primary aims had changed.
“I still wanted to exit, but at this point, I was with my wife and thinking about family,” says Cain. “It wasn’t just a 40-hour-week job, I was working late into the evening, and that was unsustainable.”
“We decided a partial exit was the best thing for all parties at this time with me going down to down to three days a week, rather than fully out,” says Cain.
“It’s been the best thing for everyone involved.”
This will be an interesting one if you’re thinking of stepping off the hamster wheel. You never know – it might be the thing that inspires you to make the move.
