The thought of leaving your corporate job to start a business can be scary. Feeling unfulfilled and preventing the world from receiving your gifts directly as a business owner – is tragic!
There’s Good News Though!!
It’s not as hard as it seems, but you do need to make some preparations first. You don’t want to end up owning a “job” instead of a “business”.
In addition to planning your new business or searching for a franchise or consultancy to enter into, it’s important to think about how you will manage your revenues and expenses so you can continue to create retirement and personal financial funds… just like you do in your corporate world.
Figuring out how to bridge that gap between a corporate job and its (perceived) benefits by becoming self-employed or having to worry about payroll for your future staff – is often the #1 fear of most budding entrepreneurs.
By mapping that out first, you can prevent the inertia that often strikes people as they begin to think about the realities of leaving their corporate job.
When you are at the top of your game in a corporate career, it can be very difficult to leave that job behind.
Many people who have reached mid-career (or “mid-season” as I like to call it) find themselves dissatisfied with their current position and want to make a change. However, they view the idea of starting over as exciting…. but immobilizing. It’s hard to know where or how to begin making this transition from corporate employee to business owner/entrepreneur.
That’s why finding a great guide, career coach or entrepreneurial mentor is your biggest asset when you are at this stage!
Most people think that starting a business is easy and it’s not. It takes hard work, commitment and dedication to be successful in your own business or as a consultant.
Do you want lifestyle designed work versus the 9 to 5 grind? Are you ready for the challenge….AND reap the benefits of being in charge of your own destiny? Do you have what it takes to take on this new adventure?
