About this Episode

Derrick and Eric discuss their personal experiences with leaving their full time jobs. Eric did so voluntarily; Derrick, not so much. They talk about the catalyst for each of them deciding to be part of a startup company - which apparently has something to do with some deep-seated authority issues. Who knew?

They each chime in on some basic management philosophy, and touch on how their families felt about them leaving so-called 'secure' jobs at established companies.

Finally, Eric explains what an Electronic Gentlemen is, and why they chose the name for the podcast. Spoiler alert: it's based on a funny story, and not much else.
