Want to quit your job because you just can’t take it anymore or need some time off? My advice on how to afford time off from work is in the April 2017 O, The Oprah Magazine issue.

Quitting your job without another lined up? Read this first.

Do you day dream (and night dream) of quitting your job?

Maybe you’re in a high stress environment that’s making you miserable… or perhaps you need a break to re-center yourself.

But giving your two-weeks notice without another job lined up? It goes against all the advice we hear, that it’s easier to find a job when you have one.
