Isa Lavahun: When is the right time to leave your job?

Have you ever taken a crappy job that you’d really rather flip off? No shame in that game, ‘cause we can all admit that pride ain’t gonna put food in your stomach or keep a roof over your head. But how do you balance paying the bills with taking care of yourself… especially when the ‘9 to 5’ quite literally makes you sick with stress? I absolutely love today’s conversation – Isa and I talk about flip-flopping back and forth between freelance work and full-time (read: overtime) employment. This one’s for anyone who’s ever wrestled with whether to take a job or tough it out. Listen now!
