Are you thinking of quitting your day job? DON’T!
You may be asking, “Why should I keep my day job?”
There are three VERY good reasons you should KEEP your day job:
- Your #1 investor – Where else are you going to find a consistent income stream to bankroll your new venture? Your paycheck may not be what you want it to be, but any is plenty, right?!
- Sharpen your skills – Your day job – whether you like it or not – is training you for success as your OWN Boss! Take every task you’re handed, and learn every aspect of how to get it done. Don’t worry about what’s included in your job description. Trainee for (X) IS your new job description!
- Networking – Now is the PERFECT time to start lining up those potential clients! Start letting people know what you’re doing. Not in a pushy way, but more so in a manner of, “How can I help YOU?” sort of way. Remember… it’s not who YOU know, but who they know… and so on.
When you are ready to make that transition from part-time entrepreneur, to full-time Boss, on your own terms, there’s a way to do it, that will not make such a huge impact on you and your family… mainly your lifestyle.
However you want to go about it, I suggest you network with other entrepreneurs and get a small support group going. It’s always a great situation to have someone you can pick up the phone and call, when things aren’t going as well as you had hoped for.
The entrepreneurial journey can be a long and hard road. Keep your day job until you have a good, clear path of where you’re going, and HOW you’re going to get there.
