Noelle Hancock had a lot going for her four years ago. She had a hit book and a $95,000 job as a journalist in New York.
She decided to give all that up and move to St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Hancock took jobs as an ice cream scooper and a bartender.
“If you're constantly thinking you need a vacation, maybe what you really need is a new life,” Hancock said in an essay in Cosmopolitan Magazine.
She spoke with WGN Morning News about the experience.
