How I Quit My Job [Resignation Letter + Checklist]

Milestones & Memories!

🤔 Ever dreamed of the day you could QUIT YOUR JOB? Tell your Boss BYE and ya know Hit The Road work from home or while you roam — in Your RV, from a hotel, or Airbnb? Wish you could BE YOUR OWN BOSS, make your own schedule, start a business, or at least a side hustle to supplement your income? Well, I’ve BEEN THERE DONE THAT 9 years ago… that’s when I decided to FIRE MY BOSS and BE MY OWN! 🎉

❗ The 18th of this month Marks a HUGE MILESTONE for me. Because on the 18th of Feb 2015, I QUIT my Full Time $ix Figure Paying Job in the Finance Industry! ✌️

YEP! 9 Years ago I had NO IDEA what was about to happen when I wrote my RESIGNATION LETTER and sent it to my Boss at the time! – And I had NO PLANS or thought in my mind to travel out of the country, buy an RV (much less 6 of them) Start A Blog, Write A Book, Develop a Mobile App, Private Label My Own Products, Design Custom Merchandise, and the list goes on…!

Nor did I plan to coach others on how to follow in my footsteps and do the same! (If you haven’t read How I Make Money Online & You Can Too be sure you do!)

Before I quit my corporate Finance job…

👀 My ONLY goal was to Quit My Job so I could FOCUS full time on running my business (aka my little “ReSelling” side hustle at the time)! — which obviously has expanded to way more than that now!

😭 I just remember feeling trapped, unmotivated, and like I couldn’t wait to get out of the office each day so I could work on my business! I was HUNGRY and READY for a LIFESTYLE CHANGE! I knew it wasn’t My Story… I call it my “Sara Blakely moment” if you know what I mean 😉

Until I quit my job, fired my boss, and started to become my own, I was like a “checklist” employee, a “Robot” 🤖

Yet, I had it all:

  • ✅ a job with a fancy title,
  • ✅ a high-rise condo in the city,
  • ✅ an expensive luxury car,
  • ✅ college degree + random Finance licenses
  • ✅ 401k, investments, saving up for retirement, etc…
  • ✅ Even a pretty cool boss “at the time”

ALL the things “Society” says make you Successful! 🤦‍♀️

🤯 BUT what I didn’t REALIZE at the time: I was in “The System” – I was a product of my Parents, and society, I was living for everyone’s dreams NOT MINE! I wanted MORE out of my life, my talents, my God Given Gifts that were burning inside of me! 🔥

However, if you know my story there were a series of events that led me to live in an RV after quitting my job!

Preparing To Quit My Job

📅 It took me 6 months to Prepare for my Departure! I went in every day with a Smile on My Face just trying to get all my work done, so I could Secretly work on my business during my free time! At that point I was just there to “Do My Employee Checklist” and collect my 9-5 paycheck. (Normally, I’m the one that comes in early, stays late, and goes above and beyond!) 👩‍💻

BEFORE I quit my job to follow my dreams… I used to say “SOMEDAY, ONE DAY, EVENTUALLY” 🙄

Sometimes I forget how SCARY it can be! I can’t tell you how many calls I made to my Mom, Boyfriend, and one or two Close Friends telling them what I was about to do. I was soooooo scared to LEAVE MY COMFY Job, BIG A$$ Paycheck, Paid Vacations, 401k, Health Insurance, PLUS EVERYTHING ELSE I had worked for behind. Not knowing 100% what was going to happen once I put the wheels in motion and crossed over to “the other side — aka my Entrepreneurial journey full time” 😱

But I did have a plan and steps I took to prepare for my final departure!

  • STEP #1 – Set A date, Mark your calendar, make a plan, and act on it
  • STEP #2 – Know your rights and benefits
  • STEP #3 – Go to the doctor & refill prescriptions
  • STEP #4 – Have an emergency fund and a budget
  • STEP #5 – Start eliminating expenses
  • STEP #6 – Leave on good terms & document everything
