52 – Why I left a 7-figure job

Hip, hip, hooray! This episode marks the anniversary of my weekly podcast for Working Women’s Wealth. Wow! I am truly thankful for the lessons that I have learned and the amazing women that I have had the privilege of interviewing and meeting along the way.

I reflect back on my own journey and the businesses that I have spent the last two years building from scratch. More importantly, I reflect on my decision to take a monumental leap of faith to walk away from a 7-figure salary. Gulp!

So for my podcast’s birthday, I want to surprise YOU with a birthday gift! I want to invite you to join my ‘Side Hustle Movement’. I have created a free* online training course that will guide you through every step of starting your very own online business in just 30 days!
