How do you find a job that allows you freedom, happiness, and the flexibility to enjoy your life?

Ryan R., who currently makes his living as a vlogger on social media, began telecommuting at his previous job at the start of the pandemic. He says he worked after hours and on weekends for six months to convert a van so that he could follow his dream of traveling.

“I traveled the country while still working my full-time job for just about seven months,” Ryan says, noting that he was able to quit his old job once he had enough followers to support himself.

Ryan Stygar, a labor and employment attorney, says quiet quitting isn’t about slacking off at work. It’s about people putting effort where it produces a valuable return for them. He says, “Do your job. Do what is expected of you, but conserve your best efforts for something that actually pushes you forward.”

Is quiet quitting just doing the job you were hired to do within the schedule you’ve been given, or is it - as some are claiming - an excuse to “slack off?” Hear from people on all sides of the argument on Thursday’s episode of Dr. Phil, “Quiet Quitting: Lazy Employees or Taking a Stand?”
