Event Details

Our local Seattle Meet, Plan, Go! host, Lori Stone, made a decision to take a career break in late 2010--yet she wasn't sure HOW to make that happen. Sound familiar? By December 2011 she'd made her move. In this casual meetup, Lori will talk about how she planned for her career break over that first year, why she chose to wait, how she approached financial considerations, why she chose a combined career break/research sabbatical, and her experience going back to work after 15 months away (SPOILER ALERT: she has another big travel adventure dreamed up for 2015!).  Learn more about Lori's story at www.joyguild.com.

Plus, we'll address some of the most common questions that come up around planning your own career break. Or just come to share your own career break travel do's and don'ts and meet like minded people who share your career break dreams!

Lori StoneLori Stone spent the last 20 years in the corporate, non-profit, and technology sectors and today specializes in communications and program management. In 2007, she started The Joy Guild, a side business at the time that incorporated her love of the arts, photography, teaching, and travel safaris from Paris, France to Moab, Utah to Melbourne, Australia. However, her full time commitment to corporate technology consulting over the last nine years kept her from fully launching her dream business.

2012 marked the beginning of Lori’s research sabbatical and career break. She is taking time off from contract management work and exploring the world around her by leading creative art retreats, traveling, writing, learning, continuing outreach as a cancer survivor-turned-advocate, building communities, and—most important—having fun. She continues to envision a world where people increasingly find play AND work that brings them joy and looks forward to her official and pleasurable business launch in 2013.
