STEP #1 – Set A date, Mark your calendar, make a plan, and act on it

  • set a date
  • Write your Resignation Letter & save it in a safe Place
  • In reality, you should be planning this six months out. This will reinforce your goal to leave!

STEP #2 – Know your rights and benefits

  • Were you given any signing bonuses or are you due to receive a bonus that requires you to remain employed through a certain date?
  • Speak with a Financial Advisor or Accountant but you will need to roll your 401k out of the employer plan and into another type of investment once you separate.
  • ** IRA RollOver or Roth IRA may sound like familiar terms
  • If you’ve received any type of employee stock, Taxes can have an implication on you.. Check into these before you leave.
  • you’re owed vacation time if you earned it and you decide to separate they still have to pay you in some cases. If not, take your leave before you announce your exit.
  • Locate and save a copy of your employee benefits guide don’t forget to read it
  • Contact Human Resources (HR). The hotline or website is there to help answer questions for you as an employee. find out everything you need to know about your 401K, insurance, vacation, attorney advice, as well as, nursing care and daycare.  

BONUS TIP: your job may pay for certificates and schooling. If there’s something you’re looking into as an entrepreneur or someone who’s getting ready to leave, I would go ahead and think about some of those things.

**Keep in mind you may have to pay some of that back. But, it’s something to look into if they’re going to pay for it. Take advantage of those things while you can!

STEP #3 – Go to the doctor & refill prescriptions

  • Go to all your Regular doctor’s appointments
  • Have prescriptions refilled for 90 days or longer and consider generic brands or alternatives
  • don’t be concerned with insurance just know that you’re not going to have it. Remember the worst-case scenario, if you had something happen a hospital has to take you, so you can go to a hospital and get treatment.

Bonus Tip: tell your doctor you’re going out of the country & unable to come back to visit them.

My Doctors offered reduced costs for individuals without insurance so it never hurts to ask!

STEP #4 – Have an emergency fund and a budget

  • prepare for any large expenses six months out when you’re budgeting.
  • Request credit limit increases on existing cards
  • Apply for any loans or extra funds you may need now:
    • Refinance your home
    • buy a car
    • apply for a credit card or loan
  • keep cash use credit you can bankrupt out of credit once your cash is gone it’s gone. Cash is king!

STEP #5 – Start eliminating expenses

  • cut back by figuring out what your necessities are. All those little things add up.
  • downgrade things you don’t need 
    • cable bill
    • eating out
    • hair & nails 
    • subscriptions
    • Club memberships. 
  • Sell all the things that you don’t use or need. You can flip those and get some extra cash to start adding to your budget 

STEP #6 – Leave on good terms & document everything

  • keep copies of w2, paychecks, time off taken and due, any additional time card info
  • Download benefits as well as 401k-type material & handbooks
