Meet Career Break Veterans, Plan, Go!

Taking it in

“If you knew you wouldn’t make it to your next birthday, how would you change your life right now?”  Would a career break seem more of a priority?  Would it be easier to plan and take a career break?

This is the question Warren and Betsy Talbot asked themselves years ago.  It is what ultimately pushed them over the edge to take the career break leap of faith.  They then spent the next 25 months selling everything they owned, saving money, and revamping their lifestyle to make their dreams a reality.  But before they left, they helped us host the first Seattle Meet Plan Go event in 2010 – this is how I came to meet Warren and Betsy and from that point on I was a fan.  Their energy, enthusiasm, and business sense is tremendous.  In fact – I’m so enthralled by them – I have agreed to travel with them this fall in Turkey as the 3 of us tackle the Lycian Way – a 520 km hiking trail in southern Turkey.

They left in 2010 and have been on the move ever since – evolving their career break into a lifestyle change and new career.  After 3 years on the road they are experts (and authors) on many things such as how to prepare for a career break, downsizing, saving money for a career breakgetting over your fears, and housesitting.  That’s why we are extremely excited to have authors, veteran career breakers, travelers, and entrepreneurs Warren and Betsy Talbot of Married with Luggage join us for a (free) Meet Plan Go meet-up on Tuesday, June 25, 5:30-8:30PM (PST) at Dear Mom in San Francisco.

One of the biggest hurdles that prevents people from taking a career break is being overwhelmed by the process. “Where do I even start?” is a common question we hear.  If you are in San Francisco – then we’ll help you answer this question.  Come join Warren and Betsy Talbot on Tuesday, June 25 as they discuss starting a business on the road and share their story and the stories of all the people they have met along the way. We’ll also have an open Q&A where people can ask whatever they like about how Warren and Betsy made their travel dreams come true.

If you’re on that ledge but can’t seem to take the leap, maybe this can be the little nudge you need.

The event is free, but please register here as space is limited. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

And  if you aren’t near San Francisco – then check out our event with Warren, Betsy, and Jannell Howell in NYC on July 2nd!
