A big factor in this is your current compensation. If you're making $90k and leaving to make $130k, then moving is probably the better option. If you make say $200k and are leaving for $240k, then it's probably more of a dilemma.

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered.

I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
