Tired of working for someone else?
You’re sick of working so hard to achieve someone else’s dreams. No more.
You want to spend your days on projects that you are passionate about, on your own terms.
You’re willing to work hard, as long as you are doing what you love. (and of course, to quit that dang job!)
Thinking about working for yourself? You’re at the right place.
In case it’s your first time here, here’s a quick introduction.
I’m Raelyn, and I help bloggers and online entrepreneurs build their dream blog + business.
This article will obviously be more biased and will cover how you can quit your job to start your own online business.
If you’re hoping to quit your job and start backpacking around the world, this may not be the article for you…
I know you’re tired of waking up every morning to commute to that dead-end job of yours.
You need a plan. And that plan is this article.
Start saving up, yo.
You don’t just quit your job without a safety net. Start saving up.
Well, you can quit your job and then think of something… but it wouldn’t be wise, especially if you have family to feed.
Have at least 6 months of monthly expenses in your bank before you try anything crazy.
Decide what you’re passionate about.
You’re tired of your job, but the last thing you want is to quit and then realize that you hate working on your new business too.
Figuring out your purpose and what you’re passionate about is key. This way, your passion will fuel your new business and you wouldn’t feel tired because working on your biz will not feel like work to you.
What problem will you be solving in this world?
Surround yourself with positive people.
Let’s face it, most people are used to the 9-5 grind. They may possibly try to dissuade you from your newfound determination to quit your dead-end job.
For instance, my parents regularly asked me to get a “real job”, but left me to my own devices.
My blog wasn’t a real job in their eyes.
But really, surround yourself with people that encourage you.
Get a coach who’ve done what you want
A wise idea would be to get a mentor. Find someone that has the knowledge you need. The coach will also double up as an accountability partner!
A good coach will shorten your learning curve by quite a lot.
