Today’s episode is one of the most raw, real, heartfelt episodes we’ve done.
Jay’s stint as a co-host is coming to an end. The show must go on, though! Paula will carry the podcast into an awesome future, and Jay will be our most enthusiastic fan.
In this episode, Jay and Paula talk about “quitting” (or “pivoting” or “retiring”) and how you know when it’s time.
They discuss a profound lesson — “sometimes you need to let go of the ‘good’ to make room for the ‘great’” — and share how they’ve applied this to both work and life.
This episode is as educational as it is heartfelt. We hope you enjoy this one.
What’s next? This will be the same show moving forward (minus one wacky co-host). We’ll cover crushing debt, saving for retirement, entrepreneurship, financial independence – a mashup of everything personal finance.
We’ll interview fascinating guests who’ve accomplished crazy, incredible things — from repaying huge debts to launching successful companies to retiring in their 30’s.
Think of this as a new beginning. And don’t worry … Jay will live in the blooper reel and guest cameo segments. You haven’t heard the last of him yet!
Note from Jay:
