A record 4.3 million workers in the U.S. quit their jobs in August and more are expected to do so as part of what analysts are calling the “Great Resignation.”

But can you afford to join them?

Host Mason King talks with Peter “Pete the Planner” Dunn about how to prepare financially to leave your job. Plus, Pete offers a prediction about the stock market as the year comes to a close.

  1. That is probably a good thing if the link is broken … If someone needs to listen to a podcast or read an article on whether they can afford to quit their job, I am going out on a limb and saying, “better keep working”! The whole premise of this seems absurd to me.
