What is “The Suck”?

One day I was talking to Stuart and I was venting about something in my life that I was having a difficult time with. And I just yelled at him that this SUCKED! In reference to the struggle I was dealing with at that time. And Escape the Suck was born. We are here to help you to Escape your struggles or barriers. We are here to help you to stop making excuses. We are here to get you to take action.

 

Who is Patrick Leitch?

Great question! I’m glad you asked. I’m a man in my late 20s who loves his time and family above all else. They are the driving force in my life. I am a Seattle native, and Nashville transplant. I graduated from college in 2013 with a degree in Finance because I always LOVED the ins and outs of money.

I was hired into a janitorial supply company as the heir apparent, but, that never really got me excited. It paid the bills, and I learned more than I could ever imagine – but I wanted more.

In October of 2015 my son was born and I knew I had to do everything in my power, regardless of what it was, to provide myself and my family the time and financial support we all deserved.

Fast forward a little less than 2 years, and Escape The Suck was born. I put my foot down and said I was going to escape my job that was keeping my from my goals, and document my escape for the world to see. I felt if you can see my escape, then you, too, will be motivated to escape and get what you want in life.

Who is Stuart Leitch?

As a mediocre entrepreneur and flying coder based in Shanghai, I spend half my time at 42,000ft doing courier things, and the other half in Shanghai building 1-2 Lab, a branding and technology company. It’s not exactly where I thought I would be at 30, but when 20-year-old Stu picked up the 4 Hour Workweek so long ago, he would have been pretty happy with how I’ve done.

All the same, it’s a constant struggle with far less money and time to enjoy this amazing courier job than I thought. In that regard, both my brother Patrick and I, and I’m willing to bet most of the world, all have the same problem.

So that we can do it ourselves, and help others to see how to do it, we created Escape the Suck. ETS for us is a mix of inspiration, data, and how-to guides on a bunch of subjects about getting out of the Suck and then enjoying it on the other side.
