Episode 89. OMG, I Quit My Job! | Host, Jannese Torres-Rodriguez

If you’ve been wanting to quit your full-time job to launch full-time entrepreneurship, Episode 89 is for you! Listen to my full “I quit!” journey and get inspired to pursue your own dreams.

I quit my full-time job!

If you’ve been following the platform for a while now, you know that I’ve been wanting to quit my full-time job for a LONG time. Originally, my plan was to quit at the end of 2021. Then it was by end of summer 2021. The Universe (and haters) had other, better plans for me!

If you’ve been wanting to quit your full-time job to launch full-time entrepreneurship, this episode is for you!

In episode 89, I talk about:

  • The importance of being intentional—y’all. Not tracking my money, not building a budget, and not understanding my cash flow meant that I didn’t realize I had even become financially independent until months after the fact. Do you have an understanding of your money situation? If not, maybe it’s time for you to conduct a personal finance audit; you don’t know what you could be missing out on!
  • The awkward story around how I quit—this happened earlier than I was expecting or planning for. Listen to find out the story behind my somewhat chaotic quit story! Just know this: there will be people watching you in your growth journey; not all want to see you thrive.
  • My journey within corporate America—yes, I quit my full-time job in corporate. But I don’t have a bad thing to say about my employer! Corporate served me, until I outgrew it. Listen to hear more about my take on corporate America.
  • My why—financial independence is possible for us. I want to normalize the idea that as women of color, we can do scary shit. We can build wealth, build businesses, and grow more and more into our full selves.

What’s the main thing I’ve realized over the years that helped me make my decision?

Design your life to accommodate your dreams.

Me quitting my job? That was me making room for my dreams.
