Kelly Will on giving up everything to follow your passion.
Kelly Will was a New York City gossip columnist. It was a dream job. But after doing it for ten years, she started wondering if this was all there is to life. “There has to be more.” Kelly said to herself. Instead of settling for mediocracy, she packed up her Honda CRV and set out on a one-year journey to visit all 50 states and meet and deeply connect with over 600 people and documenting her experiences on her blog. On this episode of the How to Quit Working Show, Kelly tells us what she learned and what advice she has for you.
