The pandemic has given many of us a unique opportunity for self-reflection and introspection.

The result: Many Americans are reevaluating their job and career strategy.

Some pundits have begun calling this “The Great Resignation,” a great voluntary mass exodus from the workforce.

According to the Department of Labor a total of 11.5 million Americans quit their job in April, May and June1 and more changes could be coming. A survey by Bankrate.com found that 55% of Americans plan to look for a new job in the next year2.


Some are changing jobs in search of higher pay, others want more flexibility, and some are worried about how their employer has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic.

We stand at a crossroad, and this is a good time to look both ways.

Career changes or retiring early can be emotional decisions, but they should never be made hastily.

We work tirelessly to develop a financial strategy that carefully weigh time and risk tolerance. Your career trajectory is part of that planning.
