Everyone experiences burnout differently. For Katrina McGhee it was a slow burn that left her totally crispy inside. After going to business school to start what she thought was her dream career, she realized it most certainly wasn’t. 

She kept pushing through and tried to stay optimistic, but things just kept getting worse and worse. There she was, in her early 30s, living a shell of the life she thought she’d have.

That’s when she decided to make a change. She worked hard and paid off all of her debt, saved up a good chunk of money, quit her job, and hit the road. Instead of staying stuck, she set out to live the life she’d dreamed of. 

Now she helps others find their healing through taking sabbaticals. Getting out into the world and seeing things outside of her normal view helped her tremendously and she knows it can do the same for others. 

Listen as Katrina shares her story and gives us tips for taking our own sabbatical. 

“I really felt like my insides were crisping like they were just toasted. There wasn’t a lot to give to my own life to fill my own cup and there wasn't a lot to give to the world outside of me.” Katrina McGhee
