In the light of the pandemic, many Americans are questioning whether or not they want to continue in their current jobs. They have seen what working from home, less burnout, and more free time can mean for them and their family…and they want more of it.

Today I’m breaking down the exact steps I took to leave my full-time teaching job to work on my business full-time. I went from working 40+ hours each week to only working 25 hours. I’m sharing exactly what I considered to make the leap to working for myself and leave the traditional job behind.

This episode is for you if you’re curious how someone leaves their full time job or if you’re considering a career transition at all.
