You’ve been fantasizing about quitting or changing jobs for months and now you’re ready; Making that leap doesn’t scare you, it excites you. The thought of creating something from nothing or joining a team that’s building something from the ground up has driven you to go from fantasizing to finally pulling the trigger. But there is one thing about quitting the job that puts butterflies in your stomach and gives you pause…

Convincing your spouse that now is the time. 

In today’s episode, we’ll break down this uncomfortable conversation and give you a simple framework so you can have a more productive discussion with your partner. 

Liz, Brett’s wife, also joins the podcast and interjects her real-life feelings and experiences from when Brett had this conversation with her.  

You’ll learn:

  1. How to formulate the conversation to relate to your spouse’s experiences 
  2. How to time the conversation so it doesn’t come as a surprise to your spouse 
  3. Why you can’t simply explain your way through this conversation 

As a bonus at the end of this episode, Brett and Liz use role playing to practice one permutation of this conversation so you can see how the conversation might play out.
