Making Working More Optional with $Pro Tanja Hester – Episode 076

April 8, 2019

Do you feel comfortable with the expectations of your job and the number of hours you work? Or do you sense impending burnout with the constant demands and grueling schedule required of you? This week’s $Pro, Tanja Hester, is here to talk about how to begin making your job a smaller part of your life. Her first step to achieve this is saving up just enough money to shift that power imbalance that you may feel with your boss, and give you confidence and bargaining power. We will also cover three routes to consider taking to make work optional for you and the different ways that retirement can look. Let’s take the proper steps now to make work more optional!
