  1. I totally agree being stuck at a job you hate is not worth it! We can always make change. You just have to want it bad enough and make sure you plan ahead.

    Starting with paying off debt first is a good way to make that decision easier when the time comes!

    1. Glad you agree. A job is always something you can change in your life. Since we get limited time here you better take advantage and have a job you truly enjoy.

      Our biggest take away from us switching jobs is having plan. And a backup plan B. As long as you take the proper steps before making the job the transition is not as stressful.

    It was the best thing that ever happened to my wife and I – we became self employed and never looked back.
