Imagine you’re at your funeral. What 3 things would you want written on your tombstone? What would you want people to remember about you after you’re gone? It might sound grim to think about these questions, but they make up the Tombstone Test and it’s what spurred 27-year-old Allison Fedele to make her career switch and become an elementary school teacher.
In this episode, Allison tells us how she trusted her gut when she started seeing red flags at her 9 to 5 job as a graphic designer. She shares her ups and downs about going to grad school, including how she handled the financial burden in her 20s, and how using the Tombstone Test helped her follow her calling to teach.
