   COVER STORY: Calling it quits: When leaving your job is the right thing to do  
Many Americans with full-time jobs say they daydream about leaving those jobs far behind. But giving up an unsatisfying career (and the paycheck with it) is not just a fantasy, say those who have experienced the joy of quitting. Tony Dokoupil reports.

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!: Work remotely? Tulsa, Oklahoma wants you (and your laptop) to move  With countless people working remotely from their homes, does it really matter where they live? According to Tulsa, Oklahoma, no! The city of 400,000 that has plenty of hip coffee shops, bustling bars, and a thriving arts district also wants more telecommuters, and is willing to pay you $10,000 to relocate there. Conor Knighton talks with people who have picked up and moved to the Sooner State after signing up for the Tulsa Remote program.

FOOD: A slice of the pizza business  
For one week every year, the center of the known pizza universe isn’t Naples, Italy, or New York (or even Chicago); it’s Las Vegas, when the International Pizza Expo rolls into town, bringing with it thousands of professional pizza-makers, and those dreaming of getting into the business. Luke Burbank talks with aspiring pizzeria owners, and those who have pursued their dreams and are now rolling in dough.
