The problem is the company doesn't have any extra for top earners. When you're just ok you push yourself to be the best. However, once you're the best you have nothing else to shoot for. The company needs to create incentives for you to push again. For example, you might be working on some girl product that you don't care about and all you're thinking about is how boring, how you don't care, and how you'd rather do something else.

Mike in the end you said to stay at your current job even if it's as simple as retail,etc. What if you feel it is taking too much time out of your week to focus on your portfolio? I'm not relying on it since I still live with my parents, in that case should I still stay or not?

I think is important to mention that when you start a new job, you need to find ways to show your own ideas, not just talk about your ideas but show them. Spend some time mocking up your ideas and present them to your boss or even to the CEO if you have the opportunity. Work on ideas that will help and promote your current employer. We are on the business of "WAOing" if that's even a word 😉 So let's WAO the world with your ideas. PEACE!!!
