How do you know when it’s time to leave your job?
That was the moment I knew… It was Christmas eve and I had just finished shifting a 10 storey campus to a new premise across town.
I had a 2 year old, a 6 year old and a working husband at home…Waiting.
They had worn the brunt of the chaos I had bought home each day for the past year.
The stress of the move, the logistics, let alone the zero budget and then the day to day operations of an education business…Well it has taken it’s toll.
I arrived home and they were all sick with an awful tummy bug. Xmas cancelled as was the weekend before to my brothers xmas BBQ…Everyone was their except me.
It was Christmas eve when I received an email…All it said was “Thank you”.
It was from my boss. There was never another acknowledgement, gift or gesture. For me it was the moment I knew it was time to leave. To work for myself.
The literal blood, sweat and tears needed to come back into my creation and impact the world.
But put more simply….My family.
That was the moment I knew…There was no perfect time. No right financial time only the right ‘mental’ time.
There are some great ways to start easing out of your job and into your own business. Let’s look at some.
****Disclaimer: I am a truth speaker, so I will always keep it real. Because let’s face it the social media highlight reels make it look so easy. But the reality of being a hipster entrepreneur will be the biggest personal development you have ever been on. Will be the hardest, until your eyeballs bleed work…Then the momentum comes and you can ride the referral wave. Until then pull up ya sleeves and be prepared to get dirty!****
- Firstly understand that it will take at least 2 years before you start to bring in consistent money into your house hold. How bloody refreshing is it to hear that! Because at least you can not beat yourself up and then celebrate when it happens quicker. It wasn’t until my 2nd financial year that I started making $7000.00 a month gross consistently.
- That you don’t need to have the bells and whistles to start. Just start. Do a big brainstorm and then catergorise. Then energetically do that one that makes you want to literally JUMP out of your seat.
- The best kind of creation is the one that doesn’t require a list, a plan or prompting The best action is the one that you just do..Imperfectly it is driven from your energy, your intuition. Often we think that we have to wait before we execute but what if you just drove it anyway. The lessons you will learn will be worth it!
- Selling will be your biggest block…So start working on your money mindset. Start looking at all your money stories and pre-programming. You can have the best programme and product ever but if you suck at receiving and asking…Then money will just by pass you!
So over the holiday period start looking at your roadmap outta dodge and stop waiting for the next moment…That next piece of straw on the camels back. It is your time now and you are ready for the next step.
I am your evidence that it can be done. With grit determination and a plan. So if you are wanting the most relevant expert, coach and cheerleader..Then that is me. I have some bloody incredible packages. Grab a list of my top 10 actions I would do (if I had my time over again) to START and BUILD a Biz…Grab that baby HERE!
