As some of you already know, I'm a second year Associate in lower middle market PE and I'm coming to the end of my stint (program ends in July) and am pretty burnt out. I don't really care for PE and am just brutally sick of working on deals. The process is monotonous and it's something I'm just not built for.
Anyway, long story short. I'm wondering if anyone has experience in taking a self-imposed break after finishing a stint in PE without going to business school. Truth be told, I could use some time to mentally refresh. Additionally, I've got a couple of non-finance things I want to work on but can't give appropriate focus to thanks to my day job.
Anyone have any advice on this? Is it just an awful idea?
