Earlier this year I made a major life change. I was offered an amazing job working for a successful tech startup. The gig came with tons of perks like free lunch, all the snacks you could want, unlimited vacation, a beautiful office downtown and so much more. But there was one downside. I had to move over 700 miles away to Chicago. Oh yea, and I had to cover all the costs of the move myself.
