For those who have a business or those who are interested in a business BuT maybe debating whether or not to keep their present “Corporate America” J-o-B.
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.
While you are working a job…Why not concentrate on increasing your clientele, your followers or list, depending on the type of business you have? It may be a challenge but it will be important to create time to work and grow your business. You will be surprised what a “willing and determined” mind can do. The mind is such a powerful thing. I’ve always believed in the theory of one of the oldest slogan ever “Where There’s A Will; There Is A Way”… how very true!
Instead 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.
To sum this up in a “nutshell”…Quitting your job right away, may not be a wise choice until you have a secured and stable/constant cash flow to replace or drastically exceed the money you already bring in. Although, one should always think positive, it is also important to think realistically by securing financial back up plans. You are going to want to be prepared mentally and financially for life’s possible curves along the way during your business journey. Just make sure when that big day comes for you to toss in the J-O-B towel…You will be more than ready. Hopefully, you will quit in style…Check out this video, one of my faves…LoL.
