"e;I was a highly rated bank analyst, at the number one stockbroker in Asia, for nearly 20 years, and I decided to give it all up. Travelling the world had created a hunger for work and income, which was more than satiated by my role as Head of Asian Bank Research at CLSA. But it got to the point where I became more concerned with my work-life balance than anything else."e;To give up a big paycheck is never easy, but that is precisely what Daniel Tabbush did in early 2012 and he has not looked back since. Quit &Run: My WakeUp Call on WallStreet is his story, spanning his career success and rise to a high-power job. However, his large salary came at a high price. "e;I was beholden to an incessant Blackberry, an instant-response industry and the process of socialising a research view endlessly. Working trips, which often spanned 20 cities, across several countries, in less than 20 days, with nearly 100 client meetings, finally took their toll."e;Over the years, Daniel's sought-after role became something much more macabre. The glittering industry he had entered into had moved away from its roots and what he had enjoyed - finding great stock ideas for investors. He decided to get out before it was too late. "e;I always kept my bank analysis simple, but my life and the industry was anything but that. I had to regain a better semblance of work-life balance. A key tenant of Buddhism is 'The Middle Path' - to avoid extremes of sensual pleasures and self-mortification - and this is what I feel I was missing for so many years, and what I am trying to regain."e;Quit &Run will appeal to fans of autobiographies, and those interested in the finance industry.
