Jeff SteinmannToday’s guest on the Go For Launch podcast is Jeff Steinmann. Jeff is author of How to Quit Working: A Simple Plan to Leave Your Job for a Life of Freedom. He is a speaker and hosts a weekly show called The How to Quit Working Show that features interviews with Freedom Fanatics who left their soul-sucking jobs and created a business that lets them live a passionate life of freedom. Jeff is also a real estate investor, but most of all, he is a Freedom Fanatic, fiercely devoted to finding a better way “do life”. Jeff also writes for several media outlets, including The Huffington Post, Lifehack and Elite Daily.
