You’ve made a decision: you want to quit your job. Your job isn’t making you happy and you want to do something about it. You want to do something that you love!

That’s why in this blog, I’ll share the 3 steps that you should take, to quit your job without going broke.

1. Figure out the finances
As said, your job pays your rent/mortgage and all the other things you need in life. That’s why you first need to figure out your financial situation before you quit your job.
You need to know things like:
- How much money do you need to get by?
- On what expenses can you cut back?
- How much can you save per month?
- How much money do you need to save for the amount of time that you’ll be without a job?
- How long will you last on your savings?
Do the numbers. Because when you have figured that out, you know how you
can move on from there.
2. Have a plan
Know what you’ll do once you’ve quit your job. Do you already know what you want to do next? Or do you first need to uncover your Soul Purpose and figure out what job will fit that?
Both options are fine, but make sure you have a plan in place. You don’t want to quit your job and end up feeling lost because you don’t know your next steps.
It can be helpful to get some help from a coach. He or she can who can help you figure out what specific steps you need to take and how you can take them. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Getting help from a coach can help you reach your goals faster and smarter.
