We’re in an economic collapse.
We have the highest unemployment since the Great Depression.
There are many more people who want jobs than there are jobs available.
Yet, you want to quit your job.
Maybe you planned to change careers this year, maybe you wanted to take a sabbatical, or maybe you wanted to retire early.
Regardless of your plans, you might feel as though this recession ripped them to shreds and blew them out the window.
But…what if you could still make your plans work?
What?! Quitting your job at the beginning of a recession is INSANE, isn’t it?
Maybe. Maybe not.
You’re kidding. Right? …Right?? Isn’t that equivalent to career suicide?
Nope. It worked for me.
Since we’re in the middle of another recession and many of you want to voluntarily leave your job at some point in the future, I’m re-airing an interview I did on Lessons From a Quitter two years ago. The host, Goli, interviewed me about quitting my job at the beginning of a recession.
I thought this might be an illuminating and apt story, particularly for anyone suffering from One More Year syndrome.
More broadly, I hope this discussion sheds light on taking risks despite the opinion of naysayers.
Don’t wait for the right time. Take the current time and make it right.
Enjoy this interview, and thank you to Lessons From a Quitter for allowing us to replay it!
