Dreading going into work everyday? Can’t stand another day of office politics? I hear ya. After quitting jobs left and right over the years, I’ve learned a thing or two about the art of resigning. Here are some important factors to consider before you turn in that resignation notice.
What are the “hidden” skill sets I’m gaining?
Take a step back to see if there are important skill sets you are acquiring while on the job. It might not always be straight forward or spelled out in the job description.
Hidden skill sets gained on the job are priceless. Whether it’s learning how to stand up for yourself or think strategically, these skill sets are especially valuable outside the work setting.
Passive aggressive coworker?
Working next to a passive aggressive coworker may be an opportunity to improve your communication skills. It may also teach you valuable lessons on how to set energetic boundaries with others.
High stress environment?
Working in a stressful fast-paced office environment may be helping you develop your instinctive skills. It may also be an opportunity for you to learn how to channel anxious feelings to create positive fuel instead.
Working with a bad boss might be teaching you patience and how to stand up for yourself. Here are some ways to handle working in a hostile work environment.
But what if there is no more lessons to be learned?
Ok so you’re sayin’ enough is enough. It’s time to get the heck out of dodge city. Well, when you know, you just know.
Then here are next steps to consider...
I quit my job on impulse one too many times without a safety net in place.
Each time I took the leap, I got better at making sure my finances were squared away first. The worst feeling is going back to the employer to ask for the job back.
Been there and it was not fun. Trust.
When I finally realized the 9-5 lifestyle just was not for me, I started working towards financial freedom like a boss. I learned a lot of tough lesson the hard way and am here to share my roller coaster journey with you!

Even as a business major in college, one would think I’d be better with my personal finances. I figured, all I had to do was make more than I spend. Right? Wrong.
It wasn’t until I realized how much I craved freedom from a cubicle that I started waking up to my beliefs and habits around money. And when I really couldn’t stand my job, I knew I needed to have a financial freedom plan.
What is F-You Money?
In light of the #MeToo movement, F-You money is especially crucial. If you are going into a hostile workplace each day, it’s time to say F-You to that.
F-You money is a 6-12 month emergency savings fund. An emergency fund can also provide peace of mind in case of a layoff or unexpected medical expense.
Over the years of working in a male dominated “old boys club” environment, I’ve leveraged my emergency fund as F-You money. Having resigned from my job without a plan, it has taken the pressure off of having to find another job immediately.
