Thursday, June 18, 2020 – Former TV anchor, Janet Mbugua, has revealed that quitting her well-paying job at Citizen TVis one of the best decisions she ever made in her life.
The 34 year old shocked many when she called it a day at the Royal Media Services owned TV where she was reportedly earning Sh500k a month in 2017.
Speaking in a recent interview with a local media house, the mother of two revealed why she quit while at her prime.
“I had done it for 10 years.”
“It was 10 years non-stop of working.”
“Starting in Nairobi, going to South Africa coming back to Nairobi, starting a family, getting into brand endorsements,” she recalled.
“I was burnt out, I had a really young child at the time and there was an election coming up and I had an election burn out and I felt that this was the good time to step back,” she added.
She also revealed that she had already figured her next move and that she had saved enough money to sustain her for about a year.
“I took six months before my final show, so I had saved enough money, I had made enough networks to do other works.”
“I just didn’t wake up and resign.”
“You can’t really afford to do that literally.”
“So I said let me put aside some money and so when I did, I had a plan for at least one year and then thank God I got some job that I am still doing.”
“It’s one of the best decisions I ever made,” she said.
