One of my biggest worries when making the decision to leave my full time job was that I was walked away from a very generous 401k plan. It’s scary to know I’ll be solely responsible for contributing to my retirement income going forward, without an employer to match my contributions. In the job I was leaving, it was our organization’s mission to help women live more financially secure lives through the right financial products – so it’s something I’m passionate about. I’d never want to put myself in a position of financial hardship in the future and I doubt I’ll want to work until I’m 70.
