It was the last Friday in April, sitting in a bullpen located on floor 4, when I realized I was destined to be more than simply being a paper-pushing accountant.
That moment where you look at the clock almost every hour, wishing you were somewhere else. That is the moment that you either change jobs or move on to being something greater.
Making that decision to become a business owner comes with plenty of trials and errors. There were no manuals and few people to guide you on the path of how to transition from being an employee to a business owner. That is until now.
Isn’t that why you are here? To find out those key points on how you can leave the “job,” to make more money, be more creative, and be more available to do the things that you love the most?
Keep reading to see if you are ready to make that change.
What makes you and your business stand out from others in the industry you want to enter?
A friend of mine wanted to leave her $95K-a-year career to open a dance studio. What she needed to consider was, where the location would be and what would make her different from the competitors around her. Everyone has a different answer for this but what you are aiming for is how to be noticed.
Do you have the funds to cover the start-up costs?
You might need to purchase large equipment or supplies. A line of credit should be obtained before leaving any job. Lines of credits are very hard to secure if you are in your first year of operations and have no income besides your new business venture.
How good are you at networking to help with your business growth?
It is all about making connections with people. Online, on the go, in the stores, heck, anywhere you go. You can’t grow a business without being able to talk about it openly with people.
There you go, a secret beginners list for now. However, before you decide to leave that job, you might want to ask me “should I still work and start my business at the same time?”- That will be in my next blog.
Thank you very much for reading, and keep returning so I can help you sort all of this out!
