Should I Leave Or Keep My Job?

Okay, let’s say you have finally set your business plan into action and you are ready to start your business; Or  you already have one and you are ready to invest more time building your own dreams…You have a J-O-B that you report to faithfully and it pays the bills.  Also, it may even allow you a bit of leisure freedom. Well, whatever the case, you may wonder, would it make better sense to keep a job or quit the job to eagerly build your business.  The choice you make should depend specifically on your circumstances and not everyone share the same.

Any Tips?

Financial Tips?

HOBBIES N SKILLSInstead of quitting your job right away, if you are able to…why not invest in a savings account specifically for the purposes of marketing/building and accelerating your business. If you are not able to save due to a tight budget as a result of your job income;  Then get your creative juices to flowing…Start considering doing odd jobs, sell/market your administrative skills, your technical skills, cooking skills, maintenance/housekeeping skills,  arts/crafts, re-sells, yard sales, etc…are you beginning to see where I’m going with this one? There are many ways to earn extra cash to enhance your business goals.

Hopefully, you will quit in style…Check out this video, one of my faves…LoL.
