Jannese quit her full-time job!

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

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

Episode 89 Highlights:

  • The importance of being intentional—y’all. Not tracking her money, not building a budget, and not understanding her cash flow meant that Jannese didn’t realize she 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 she quit—this happened earlier than she was expecting or planning for. Listen to find out the story behind Jannese’s somewhat chaotic quit story! Just know this: there will be people watching you in your growth journey; not all want to see you thrive.
  • Her journey within corporate America—yes, Jannese quit her full-time job in corporate. But she didn’t have a bad thing to say about her employer! Corporate served her, until she outgrew it. Listen to hear more about her take on corporate America.
  • Her whyFinancial independence is possible for us. Here at YQD™, we 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 Jannese realized over the years that helped her make that decision?
