If your DH is fine with it, I say quit and train under your Mom!

Think of it like going back to school. If you could get a degree to allow you into a new field in 3-6 months for free, that would be a no-brainer!

Since your Dh is cool with it, just let the job go. I am getting laid off and I am trying to view it as a much needed vacay and time to focus more on school. It is only a few months before you will be more situated. Your current job, like my soon to be previous one, has no benefits but your crappy paycheck. This opportunity sounds too good to waste. Good luck to you!

@mrshoneybee:  If your DH is supportive of this, and you guys can make ends meet without this income, then go for it!  You could also pick up a part time retail/restaurant job if you feel like you need something in the meantime.

@mrshoneybee:  Go for it. It sounds like you have thoroughly thought out all the issues and the pros/cons. Think about it: in 1.5 years, you could be your mom’s assistant, start selling houses, and be moving up. Or you could be at your job. 

It is a really hard choice, but it sounds like this is an opportunity.
