6 Simple Steps to Taking a Year Off Every Decade

“How in the world do you take a year off of work??”

It’s a question I have heard a LOT during our year long sabbatical.

In reality, it isn’t complicated. It’s not even very hard.

But 99% of people don’t see it as a possibility.

These simple 6 steps will prove that wrong. I will show you a flexible path you can customize. In fact, half way through this PDF, you might realize you could create a life where you can take a year off from work every 5 years!

Taking a year off, Gap Year, Sabbatical: whatever you want to call it. This is a time to live on your own terms. An entire year to fulfill YOUR biggest dreams. There is no need to wait till you are 65. No need to save a million dollars.

My new PDF guide just released. It will be FREE to everyone on my weekly email list! You know what is even more fun than taking a year off? Sharing that with a friend! So make sure you pass this on!

  1. Awesome! Look forward to checking it out and sharing it. 🙂 I agree with you. It’s not complicated, just gotta delay some gratification. It’s understandable that it’s not for everyone though.

  2. This is great!
    I have been thinking of putting together a PDF to talk about my own experience with this. I know for a fact it’s possible to take a year off because I’ve done it too. And I know how beneficial it can be. Can’t wait to read! 🙂

    • Awesome, I would love your input too after you read it! The great thing about a digital product, I can always tweek it after the fact for future readers. =) Hopefully, it will show folks that this isn’t complicated or even that hard. I think it is totally within reach for most people with just a bit of planning. I’m putting the finishing touches on it today!

  3. I am also in full time employment and under 26 – my work allowed me to take all my holidays together and I volunteered in Thailand for 4 weeks. It was an amazing experience, have you considered taking your holidays all together?
    It will take you about 2 days to travel to Asia, and 2 days back again, plus you need a day or two to re-acclimatize, in my opinion to do all that in 2 weeks you aren’t getting the most out of the opportunity.

    • That is great! It’s a great option for some people. While Mr. Mt was in the military we took a few 3 week trips. Twice in other jobs we asked for special permission to take a month off. Some jobs it can be tough to pull off depending on your position. In Mr. Mt’s last job, there were people who struggled to take a full week off. Anything longer was just too stressful because of the amount of work that would pile up. Thanks for the suggestion!
