Leaving your job can be pretty scary. The idea itself it super scary. What if I am still not happy when I leave my job? This job already gives me a lot of stability. I SHOULD be happy where I am. But you may not feel quite right where you are. And this episode is all about telling you that is totally ok. Because often times we are scared to talk about how we do not like our job: What if our boss finds out? What if I am seen as weak? This week, I chat with Megan Smiley, who left her law practice to become a Director of International Programs at Fordham Law School, and also has her own podcast - interviewing lawyers who left the profession. In this episode, she talks about how she was able to transition out of her legal practice, the exact steps she took, and the stories of other former lawyers who left and transitioned multiple times. The conversation we had goes to show that there is really no right or wrong answer; you have to find that answer within yourself and you can also get there with some help.
