Review: The Career Break Traveler's Handbook | Meet Plan Go. When Meet, Plan, Go! Co-founders Michaela Potter and Sherry Ott took career breaks to travel several years ago, the term “career break” wasn’t even common lingo yet. And there certainly weren’t many, if any, resources, advising them about how to prepare to take a year or more off from work to see the world. Times have changed and there are an increasing number of resources out there for those who dream of escaping the cubicle – from negotiating a sabbatical to downsizing your belongings to seeing the world by housesitting.

And a new book by former career breaker Jeff Jung aims to provide an overall roadmap for taking a career break to travel. Jung, the founder of Career Break Secrets, recently published The Career Break Traveler’s Handbook, one of five books in the new Traveler’s Handbooks series from several notable travel bloggers. He was kind enough to send us a copy so we could provide a preview for our readers. There was a lot to like about The Career Break Traveler’s Handbook. Meet, Plan, Go!

" So Pamela started a blog-Escape from Cubicle Nation-to share her experience and advice. This book includes Pamela's very best material, based on thousands of conversations and reader submissions. Get ready to learn your real options, make an informed decision, and maybe, just maybe, escape from cubicle nation. Product Details Editorial Reviews "What a treat! Part 1. 1. Meet, Plan, Go! Canteen - Escape 101: The Four Secrets to Taking a Sabbatical or Career Break Without Losing Your Money or Your Mind. Most helpful customer reviews 10 of 11 people found the following review helpful. This book can make you REALLY unhappy - or change your life.By Burton KentFirst of all, this is NOT a book on where to go and what to do after you've made your break for freedom.

If you want to know what to do with your free time, and where to go, this is not the book. You can also find hundreds of travel guides, websites, etc. to help you plan what you'll do with your freedom. This book is more important than that. Next to "The Four Hour Workweek", it's the ONLY book I know of that shows how you can actually grab your freedom this year.

Not in 2 years, 10 years, or when you retire. You can start today. Most of us work 30+ years during the prime of our lives, just so we can someday retire, and do what we want. I got my hands on this book at a REALLY good time. The biggest thing stopping most people from taking a sabbatical or time off from work is mindset. If you're like most people, you're probably wrong.
