How to Know When it’s the Perfect Time to Leave Your Job

Ha ha ha!

I hate to break it to you love, but there’s NEVER the perfect time.

I talk to women day in + day out who want to jump off that cliff.

Let me guess: you feel the call, you know it’s time, you’re thinking about it, you maybe even have a bit of a cush of money to fall on.

Still, you’re scared. You want to know when the right time is so that it will all work out perfectly and you’ll never have to suffer!


Hold up! (8 # tutti frutti!)

That’s your mind, babe. Thank your little monkey mind. Give it a little pat on the tooshie! Cute monkey!

That’s NOT your guidance.

Your guidance is that knowing inside that you will do it.

Your guidance is the part of you that keeps talking about it or writing it in your journal.

The part of you that thinks you have to have it all figured out, have no debt, have tons of money in the bank, have a full-proof plan- yeah, that…uh-huh.

Look, that’s just NOT life.

I can’t promise you it’s all going to be easy. I can’t promise you it’s going to work out just how you’d like.

I can’t promise it won’t be hard.

If you want to be a healer, a spiritual teacher, an entrepreneur, then you better buck UP!

This is NOT for the faint of heart.

I know. I did it. I left that secure paycheck, great insurance, 401k, and total trust + admiration from everyone I met as soon as I said, “I’m a teacher.”

Yep. My IDENTITY sailed away on a calm sea as I just sat on shore and watched. BRUTAL.

And, alone, with some cush, lots of debt and not a great plan, I decided to take off to Mexico. When in doubt, go swim in the sea.

Here’s the thing, if you DON’T listen to your knowing, you’ll die inside, have regrets and likely get ill.

If you DO listen, you’ll grow, fall, fail, cry, pound your fists + create a future beyond your wildest dreams.

Only the ones who take risks, and jump off cliffs get the thrill of the fall and find out there’s not solid ground down there, but gorgeous caves + cool colored fish!

You’re just letting go of your old paradigm, habits, patterns + programs. It’s uncomfortable.

But, I’ll tell you this, I thank myself every. day.

I jumped, built a solid foundation upon which I can support myself + my daughter + stay home. I didn’t know what I was up to back then when I first began, I simply knew I had. to. do. it.

I trusted in faith, and that, is the spiritual journey.

So, are you on a spiritual journey, or not? That’s all you need to decide.

Pick one.

You won’t die.

(Spoiler alert!)

We never *really* do!

So, when the time is right, you’ll sense it inside with your own knowing. I wish I could be there to see that leap. It’ll be beautiful, girl. Just beautiful!

All my love,


Rachel Claire
