So you want to take a career break?

In 2022, after 14 exhausting years in the workforce — I quit my high-profile, lucrative remote job to travel the world, rest and recharge, and do my own thing.

And along the way, I've learned — taking an adult gap year is as much about mindset as it is about money — so I've written a practical guide.

In this book, you'll learn how to budget for a career break and manage through the many emotions that exist both before and after quitting your job — from someone who's lived through it. 

That book... the product of years of dreaming and planning about escaping the American debt trap, and finally taking back ownership of my time and energy for the things that matter the most to me... is almost ready for release.

But who is Julie B. Rose, anyway?

Julie has been solo traveling full-time since selling her house and most of her belongings in 2020. In late 2021, she quit her high-profile corporate remote job in social media to take a career break from traditional full-time employment — to regain her time, mental energy, and creativity — and to work on her upcoming memoir and fully enjoy her travels without constraints. An unmarried, child-free woman who refuses to settle, she's passionate about financial freedom, female empowerment, and rebelling against societal expectations to be true to yourself. Julie is currently living off savings and investments, and is mentoring clients who are interested in making their escapes too. 50 states, 31 countries and counting.
