WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

In September 2016, Alli Hoff Kosik walked away from her dream job to pursue her love of writing professionally. And that decision came with a ton of insecurities. As Alli shares in our conversation, being raised by strong, independent women to be a strong, independent woman, she grappled with feeling like she was somehow letting these women down. Recently married, she felt torn between staying in a job that was no longer the right fit and leaving to pursue her own career while relying on the financial support of her new husband.

We talk about…

  • How we let money define our worth and our relationships

  • Redefining what a strong woman is

  • Dealing with insecurities and guilt after leaving her full-time job

  • How Alli knew it was time to leave her job
