Vicki Simons, President of NKBJ InfoNet, LLC, designated September 25, 2014, as “I Quit My ‘Nine to Five’ Day Job Celebration Day” in honor of  current and would-be home-based business owners. (2014 news release)

In advance of the holiday in 2015, she renamed the holiday slightly, to read, “I Quit My ‘Nine to Five’ Job Celebration Day”. (2015 news release)

By September 25, 2016, was started as the “home” for the annual holiday.



From the 2015 news release:


Aiken, SC – September 25, 2015 — For the second year in a row, Vicki Simons and her husband Mike will honor home-based business owners who have already quit their corporate jobs — as well as those who aspire to do the same — on September 25, which they’ve named “I Quit My ‘Nine to Five’ Job Celebration Day”. The date is perfect because when it is written out in numbers — 9/25 or 925 — it reminds the couple of the many people who currently work “nine-to-five” jobs or any kind of a corporate job in which their wages come from an employer. The Simonses own a home-based business and offer help to others who desire to establish one of their own.


“Having worked in the corporate marketplace, I understand the pressures that working for someone else presents,” Vicki Simons said. “When you are self-employed and work for yourself at home, you set your own goals and hours while enjoying the freedom of a home-based business.”


According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, a number of well-known corporations including Apple Computer started out as home-based businesses. The SBA states that more than half of all U.S. businesses are based out of an owner’s home and that starting a home-based business has many rewards as well as challenges.(1)


Industry experts say that many people today are seeking more freedom with both their time and their finances. For freedom seekers, the wisest course of action before quitting an existing job may be to start and run a carefully selected home-based business to build a second income that completely replaces current income. Depending on many factors, some businesses grow faster than others.


Among the many aspiring home-based business owners are those who currently:

  • Spend any amount of time working for someone else;(2)
  • Work during hours other than 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.;
  • Work at jobs away from home; and
  • Have more than one part-time job.


The Simonses realize that many people would leave their corporate jobs if only they had the knowledge, tools and skills to start a business of their own. For that reason, they are offering a free report with info about earning a second income in a home-based business while being employed. To access the free report, visitors simply enter their email addresses through the form on the page and confirm their subscription in the email.
