With a tough economy in our midst, there are several things to consider before quitting your job. When your boss calls every morning at 5am and your coworkers can’t cut the gossip, it’s tempting to hand in a resignation letter and run. But any potential future boss would cringe if you spend the next year propped in front of a television set. Here are 7 vital things to consider before quitting your job –because when you’ve covered your bases, quitting will be regret-free!

She takes care of the rent while I pay for necessities like food and tidy up the house.
