30 Days-Notice is a countdown to Aly Hensler's final day as a traveling saleswoman, with each chapter chronicling a day in that month. In a foray into creative nonfiction, we at ChangeThis have the honor to share two of those days with you.

"No one expected me to leave. In a world of shifting loyalties and job hopping, Widgets Inc. is the kind of rare place that people retire at, where a sales representative can pull in a comfortable base salary, company car, and expense account."
