Here’s the Truth: You Need to be 110% Ready Before Leaving Your Full-Time Job
I was once a huge proponent for the whole ditch-your-9-to-5-right-now-and-follow-your-passion. I’ve changed my mind since.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a firm believer that traditional corporate-America isn’t as safe and secure of a career route that it once was.
However, before you cast away the cubicle and begin building your own career understand this:
No one tells you how lonely and difficult it is being in full control of your career.
Before you leave you need to be 110% ready. Meaning you need to…
- Have a substantial amount of savings stashed away somewhere for the months you struggle to find business
- Have a legitimate business model to bring in consistent revenue every month
- Have a support network in place of other individuals who are treading down similar career routes
- Become mentally tough
You know how many of those things I did before I left my job in June? About 0.5, aka half of one of those things.
Be ready. Be 110% ready before making this drastic career change.
I’m living through it now and it’s not easy.
