Kelly Gurnett from Cordelia Calls It Quits is featured in this episode. Kelly shares her experience going from a full-time gig that she got comfortable in, to transitioning her writing business into a side hustle, to finally quitting her day job to become a full-time freelancer.
Kelly shares her very personal story of knowing when it was time to follow her dream and push herself out of her comfort zone, how it all worked (and what didn’t), and how she partnered up with the right people to help her get to where she wanted to go, faster.
