“Because we live in a society that doesn’t find value in taking time off, we wanted to create a community for people who do want to break out of the norm and travel for an extended period of time,” says co-founder of Meet Plan Go! Sherry Ott. Join us in Los Angeles for our October 18th event. “It’s about creating a peer group of people with the same dream. Whether it’s a career break, running a marathon, or earning an advanced degree; we all need people to keep us accountable, energized, and focused on our goals,” added Ott.
In addition to offering tools and resources for planning a career break, the panel will also address the main concerns that prevent people from taking a career break, usually centered around financial, career-related, societal, and safety concerns.
