From Corporate Desk to Corporate Dropout:


When I quit Corporate, I didn’t tell my family and most of my closest friends.

Each of the three times I quit without a Plan B, I lied to them.

Telling them my resignation plans would have caused overwhelming concern and added stress.

Instead, I informed them of my career change after the fact.

It wasn’t easy for them to hear but they eventually accepted my decision after they saw how much happier I was.

Having a solid support network is the most important yet most overlooked must-do.

Before I resigned, I worked with a business coach, career counselor and talked with various mentors.

Perhaps everyone is trying to give you advice. But none of their suggestions are helpful?

Don't have an idea what you want to do next? Take a year off to reset? Start a business?

Before you create a plan for your Corporate Dropout timeline, make sure you get on top of your personal finances.

Let's make your career change happen!
