If you’re in the pre-quit phase of a job, where you’ve started a side gig but haven’t left your primary job, you may be feeling like there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished.
But there are. This week’s guest, Tara Button, Founder and CEO of BuyMeOnce.com and author of ‘A Life Less Throwaway,’ talks about how she cut down her hours at her primary job and ensured that she worked only the hours she had promised so that she could fully dedicate the rest of her time to developing her passion project.
Many of us imagine that leaving the corporate world is akin to freeing yourself from cubicle prison. However, that world does come with some exciting benefits that those making the exit may fear they'll miss.
Such was the case with this week's guest April Shprintz. When making the quit from her sales job (in her most successful year!), she had to overcome both the fear of missing out and the fear of failure. However, April didn't just persist in the face of fear, she found a way to eliminate fear altogether, and she shares her process in this weeks episode.
All too often the one thing keeping people stuck in a job or career they don’t like is the fear that financially they won’t be able to survive if they quit, because so many of us have been raised with a mindset surrounding money that tells us we both have to continually chase it and that we’ll never have enough.
Initially, this week’s guest, entrepreneur, author, and founder/ host of the “Life by Design not by Default” Virtual Summit Darrah Brustein, had a similar mindset. However, in this episode she’ll tell you how mapping out the costs of your goals to can decrease the anxiety that stems from constantly chasing the dollar, and how to make other beneficial money mindset shifts to allow you to put some of those financial fears to bed and make whatever quits necessary to follow your calling.
They say the only two certainties in life are death and taxes. Some of us spend all year doing financial tricks to ensure that we don’t have any regrets on tax day, but how many of us spend anywhere near that much time making sure we have no regrets on our deathbed?
That’s exactly what this week’s guest, coach to social enterprise entrepreneurs Daniel Pointer, suggests doing when we encounter fears about leaving one area of life and transitioning to another.
Take a listen to find out how reminders of your death can help you quit your way to your best (regret-minimized) life!
