Can you afford to quit your job today to pursue your daydreams? I am seriously asking you if you could walk into your boss’s office tomorrow and put your two weeks’ notice.
Why? All for the sake of pursuing work and a lifestyle that is more satisfying to you.
Maybe you want to make a career move. Perhaps you are tired of feeling like you work to pay the bills. Honestly, there is little satisfaction when that is the case.
Today, I want to tell you that it is possible actually to make that crazy change.
I know because my husband and I did it.
Life Before The Move
A year and a half ago, we were living in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. I was feeling unhappy, unsatisfied, and trapped in a routine that was burning me out.
When my husband asked me, why don’t we move back to Kansas?, I thought he was kidding.
We both had good jobs. I was making the most money I have ever earned in my career.
But still, I was not happy.
We had been in our brand spanking new home for only two years, and I loved my house, especially the massive island in the kitchen.

We bought that home in a nicer neighborhood, located in one of the top school districts in the state.
And still, I dreaded my routine.
I had created a lifestyle that, after all, was not making me happy.
And then there it was, the option to leave everything behind, move away, and try to find more peace in a less hectic city.
I didn’t have to think twice.
The One Question You Need To Answer
The move would immediately increase our quality of life, away from the traffic and the complications of a large metropolis.
This move also would put me closer to a life dream of mine, buying a property in the countryside, and having a horse.
When we sat down to come up with a plan, there was a straightforward question we needed to answer.
Can we afford it?
Can we afford to quit two good-paying jobs?
Can we afford to sell a house and buy another home?
Can we afford to pay for movers, realtors fees, and all the expenses attached to relocating?
We were able to make the decision quickly, only because we could afford it.
So, we did it.
My husband got a new job while I started my business.
Then I decided to get a job as well. At the same time, I grew my business.
I didn’t anticipate the anxiety of being on variable income as a new business owner, and I didn’t like that feeling!
After spending my entire working life getting a pretty stable paycheck every two weeks, I was not too fond of the unknown being on a variable income.
Uplevel Your Finances And Pursue Your Dreams
So here we are, a year and a half later, pretty happy with our decision.
I have never had more free time to spend it with my family.
Also, I reduced my commute by 85%.
Life is different when you don’t spend hours stuck in traffic!
So, I want to motivate you to look into your lifestyle.
Do you love it?
Do you dread it?
If you answer as most people do, then you need to uplevel your finances so that you can afford to pursue change.
A life you love is available to you, but you need to make it happen!
That’s why in today’s podcast, I share with you the method that we used to start enjoying life more, commute less, and pursue our daydreams.
