What $$ amount would you want/need in order to leave a firm gig with benefits to be an independent contractor?
I am a 17 year seasoned outpatient PT in Tampa FL who is the current head PT for my clinic. I do marketing, admin duties as well as staffing. I haven’t gotten a base hourly salary raise in 8 years! (I do get a percentage of profits but due to Covid, haven’t gotten one in 2 yrs). I do not get 401k, con Ed or health insurance benefits.
Current salary is $85K. I am getting very frustrated that this has not increased even after asking. Thoughts? What to do? What do other seasoned FL PTs make?

I’ve spent my career on the internal/exec comms side of the house and am looking for a director role.

The roles do come with a broader comms team, so if I were to get one then it’s not like I would be on my own. Am I being insecure about not being experienced enough in media relations or is it ok?

Unless you’re wealthy, would recommend getting laid off vs. leaving. You’ll probably get a severance and may even get benefits coverage for a few months after. Plus you never know how long it’ll take to find another job.
Oh yeah I meant securing a new job before quitting, not quitting without a new one lined up.
I just got laid off last week after eight years with my company. They were bought by a larger company and they trimmed two senior Directors to make more on the deal. I wanted to leave but I was so overwhelmed with work that I had almost no free time to look. Now I can go on vacation without worrying about work and I have six months severance. But I still worry about finding a role that is what I want in that time, TBH.
Be proactive and look for a new job, you sound ready for it any way
I'm sure this varies by situation, but if you get laid off you get unemployment. Definitely factor that into the equation.
Oh haha sorry I totally misunderstood!
