The outcome (AKA Escape from the City)
Looking at the different scenarios Rupert and Sophie were thrilled to learn that these changes could happen sooner rather than later. After just one year Rupert left the City and now works from home for a forward-thinking law firm (and even managed to get some time out to go sailing after leaving the city). Sophie is considering her next career move, perhaps starting the business that she’s been thinking about for years, whilst also remaining very active in her local community (and of course running the household!). Their two boys get more family time with their parents and are enjoying their new (and very lively) canine addition to the family!
Final thoughts about undertaking the planning journey from the Caseys
Rupert – “It’s our life, we’ve only got one of them so we may as well plan it and why not do it sooner rather than later? Nothing is written in stone and nothing’s certain, but at least we have a framework.”
Sophie – “You’ve got to be open to the reality check. You have to accept that you can’t have everything and that you’re investing in your future. There is a bit of a mindset change and you have to be pretty open and have some conversations that you’ve maybe been putting off. Definitely do it!”

You never know where it may lead, and there is never a better time than now to make a change.
