Leaving your job without a Plan B

Written by

Leaving a job can be a tough thing to do. Leaving a job with no other job is downright frightening.

Now imagine leaving a dream job, the host of a national radio program listened to by millions of people, for years and years, and over the course of time, it comes to you: it’s time to go.

That’s what former Marketplace host Tess Vigeland did in 2012. She chronicled her exit – and those of dozens of others like her – in a new book called “Leap: Leaving a Job with No Plan B to Find the Career and Life You Really Want.”

She told KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis about that experience.
