The city I have lived in for the past 10 years just isn't a very good environment for internet entrepreneurs and I feel like it's holding me back. I just graduated from college in December so I've decided that it is time for a change. I understand it's expensive, but I'm willing to live on the cheap for the opportunity to surround myself with like-minded individuals and mentally stimulating experiences. After tax season, I'll be ready to pack my bags and go. I already make money as an independent contractor over the internet, so work will not be much of a problem.
Is this gung ho attitude an example of stepping outside my comfort zone and making things happen, or would it be a mistake to move 3000 miles across the country with false hopes, like the 16 year-old runaways moving to Hollywood with dreams of becoming the next big thing?
Has anyone else moved to SV hoping to put their entrepreneurial drive into full gear? Want to share your experiences?
