Case Study: Li Vasquez-Noone


Li Vasquez-Noone

Li Vasquez-Noone worked at a “soul-less” multinational corporation that seemingly only cared about the bottom line. She reported to not one, but two bosses, and saw no path to advancing.

Like many frustrated employees, Li began plotting an escape plan: She set a date one year in the future when she would simply quit. She got her husband on board and diligently saved up a year’s worth of take-home pay.

And then she did it. On that date, she gave notice — without anything else lined up.

Fortunately, Li’s leap of faith found solid ground — though not immediately.

Read on to find out how this former cubicle worker swapped her corporate job for double the pay.

  1. I loved this story. I can so relate. I've been struggling for a year to get through the Accelerated Course. I'm just not into writing to sell. I have been writing sermons (used to be a pastor and chaplain) and newsletter articles for years. I know I write well. I'm far more interested in short writing assignments: blog posts, articles,e-mails, etc. I've been working my way through some of the shorter courses in B2B writing and that is going far better for me! Thanks for the inspiration to keep going and create a writing life which works for me.
