what would you do?

I work for a financial advisor who works out of an office in AZ and one in CO.. I'm at the AZ one but last fri he asked me if I would move out to CO to run the two offices up there.. it would involve almost tripling what I make now.. only problem is he wants me to move by the 1st of July and as of today I'm 13 weeks prego.

the money would be fantastic but I dont know if I'm ready to completely change my life in every way.. I'm so stressed out its not funny... any advice?? what would you do??

  • I have advice! I'm from CO. It is beautiful here and a wonderful place to live. There are certain areas of CO that area better than others, as with all states. What I recommend is to reeeeaaally look hard into the housing situation. The rent prices where I live are getting pretty high. BUT the housing market is awesome and homes are being sold pretty cheap. You've got to weigh your options and see if the move is more beneficial than stressful. Good luck!

  • Well, the money would be super nice. Also, do you like your job a lot? Is there a change you'll lose your current job if you don't take the promotion? Colorado is a good place. My hubby and I want to move there when he's done with school.

  • Not to be offensive if you arent married, but if you are...then what does hubby say? Is he on board? Sometimes change is good.

  • I moved while I was six months pregnant with my youngest. It was definitely the right decision. I wouldn't rule out a move while pregnant if everything else is pointing to that being the right decision.

  • Does your boss know you're pregnant? If not, I would inform him and see if the offer still stands. Otherwise, it sounds like a great opportunity.

  • I have lived in CO and I loved it! I always though about returning too. Is there anyway you can go there and preview the city/area you would be moving to? Maybe you can find out more about it and if you will like it there and it could put your mind at ease too. If it would triple my income I would most likely do it. Especially if I loved my job and my boss!

  • Have you ever been out there? Would you be able to take a long weekend trip out there to see how you like the area?

  • yeah my boss does know that I'm prego.. and he's cool with it.. he says I'm the only person he trusts to run his offices.. so thats good..

    and I have gone up to CO a couple of times and I love it but its so dang cold...
