    So cool. I remember I quit my job in retail management. I now work part time and am much happier.

    • Sounds like you made an excellent choice! Lots of people get stuck on autopilot when it comes to their jobs. Just curious, are you still working in retail management?

        No – I left retail far behind – thank God!
