Why I Left My 6-Figure Career to Become a Flight Attendant | The Crown Issue

Featured in the Crown Issue of Liveology Yoga Magazine.




If “take a leap of faith was a person,” they would be me. Yes, I left my six figure marketing career behind to become a Flight Attendant which does not pay close to half of my recent salary. I woke up one day and I decided I did not want to ever have to respond to another email, hop on a quick call, address the elephant in the room or hit the ground running, again!


The reason I decided to share this experience is because I know, someone, somewhere is questioning if they should leave a career for their own personal reasons. I am not here to share an exit plan or strategy. And while there may be some black and white instructions somewhere on how to make life changing transitions, I will admit that my approach to this is very gray. Thus, the journey that I have decided to embark on requires an open mind, faith, self-reflection, fearlessness and curiosity. It is a choice of liberation.


I believe in myself and trust in my journey so much that I am not afraid to release it all and restart. In life we are going to experience adversity whether we plan for it or not. Thus, reading books like “you’re a bad ass” by Jen Sincero and “the obstacle is the way” by Ryan Holiday have really helped me to muster up the audacity to leap. So, if you’re reading this to put things into perspective for your own personal journey, I highly recommend the practice of reading. Even if you only commit to 5 minutes daily, it can be life changing in how it shifts your mindset. If you lack confidence, read books that help with confidence. If you lack faith, read books that help with faith. Simple.
