To all the lucky people who have managed to (or are about to) escape teaching, How did you manage it? I know that actually suggesting alternative careers to me is difficult when you don't know me, but I would appreciate any advice on the steps (big or small) you made to make the transition as smooth as possible. I know that saving up some money to fall back on is a good start (I'm working on this) but do you have any other tips please? Even just sharing the story of your transition and where you went to would be a big help. Thank you!
