I‘m not happy at work, but I’m also afraid to leave and do something else. I’m afraid I won’t be paid as much somewhere else. I also really want to do meaningful work. I don’t know if I should go or stay. I just feel like I’m lost.

Dear Nancy,

Many people find themselves at a similar crossroads. It’s enervating to go to work every day when you aren’t feeling fulfilled and we understand the concerns regarding pay as well as your desire to do work that is meaningful to you. Have you checked out any of our Flexible Job Spotlights? The world of work is changing and there are so many possibilities. Another thing we’d recommend is for you to try one of our Ask Amava Discussion Groups. We get Members together with experts to discuss various topics. You can get questions answered and talk to other Members. That might give you some ideas and will certainly provide a framework for assessing your options. You can also check out this piece from one of our Guest Contributors.

Keep Living Well,

Team Amava
