How to Quit Your Job to Travel Full-Time

Quitting your job to travel might feel like an insurmountable goal, but it doesn’t have to be. There are some aspects that definitely help you take the leap (like having a high paying job to begin with), but with proper prioritization, following a few specific principals, and a whole heck of a lot of planning – you might be able to actually leave the job you’ve been wanting to and pursue your real goals in life!

The key is to really want it, and to plan for it long term. If you would like to learn how you can change your life in meaningful ways, come chat with us!

  • How to prepare for a long-term trip
  • How to manage your daily responsibilities while you travel (mail, paying mortgage, etc.)

About the speakers

Carla ( @whereonplanetearth ) and Alan are a childfree latinx couple who recently quit their tech jobs to travel the world! They hold 3 passports each and have been to 43 countries together (67 in total). Carla was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela and Alan in Mexico City, Mexico. They met at New Employee Orientation while working at Microsoft (sooo romantic).

Carla soon realized she wanted to do something with more of an impact and switched her career to the nonprofit sector and then to social enterprises. She started working remotely many years prior to the pandemic and early on, she decided that she would never go back to an office. Alan joined the remote journey a couple years later and they traveled and worked from many different places around the world for several years. But, that wasn’t enough. They wanted to be free of zoom meetings and timezone overlaps. Always in conflict with the American expectation of working without a break their entire adult life, they planned for many years to quit their jobs while still young to both travel the world and reassess what they wanted to do next professionally. They have just embarked upon their journey and eager to share with others how they achieved it!
