In this episode, I'm going to talk about some of the reasons why teachers are thinking of leaving the profession and how much do they actually need in order to leave teaching if that's what they really want to do.
The people who ask these types of questions tend to be twofold. Either they want to retire early and they are wondering if they have enough money to do so, or they are thinking of leaving teaching but are not sure how much money they will need to be able to do that.

We'll look into these here in this episode and should you make up your mind to leave teaching, I am also going to share some steps that I encourage you to take to ensure that you are financially prepared to leave teaching.
