Great Escapes: Examples Thereof
February 21, 2012 11:43 AM Subscribe
I'm looking for examples (biographies, documentaries, blogs...any format, really) about people who made the decision to completely change the direction of their lives, particularly folks who went from a typical "day job/corporate career" into something less mainstream.

Whenever I feel a bit trapped by my life, especially my job (middle management in a corporate job that's usually okay, but occasionally soul-sucking), I like to plan my Great Escape. The main problem is, I don't have too many examples of successful escapes to plan my own.
Feel free to suggest off-the-wall examples. In fact, the more off-the-wall, the better, so long as the beginning is fairly mainstream and the result is something very different.
