Welcome to the end of the Quit Your Day Job Series! This is the day you all have been waiting for: the day you set your quit date!
Sometimes we just have to leap before we feel totally ready. Truth be told, not a single entrepreneur I know felt 100% ready when they quit their jobs to work for themselves. Some were even forced into it due to lay offs even though the’d been thinking about quitting for months! It was the Universe’s way of giving them a helping hand.
Watch the video below to set your quit date and move through the fear of taking the leap. I even share a little bit about how I quit my job almost two years ago for an awesome career change. (Spoiler alert: it was the best decision I ever made!)
If you’re on the go you can download the MP3 for your listening pleasure.
How I Quit My Job for An Awesome Career Change Video Recap
1. Decide on a quit date and commit to it!
Bust out your calendar, circle a date in red and COMMIT TO FOLLOWING THROUGH! The difference between those who quit their jobs and those that don’t is just a matter of follow through.
2. No one ever feels 100% ready to take a leap.
Not a single entrepreneur I know has ever felt 100% ready to take the leap and quit their day job to work for themselves – even if they hated their job! We live in a society that tells us to go to school and get a job, and for many a regular job equals security. As a former recruiter, I can tell you that a full-time job is no more secure than running your own business. In fact, you have more control when you run your own business, you just need to make sure you’re running it properly.
3. Commit to yourself, otherwise you’ll feel like you failed and are less likely to quit your job later on.
This is a big one people! You must commit to yourself when you make the decision to quit your job to work for yourself full-time. It’s only through commitment and perseverance that so many entrepreneurs have been able to make their dreams come true. It’s up to you to show up, do the work and take the necessary action – otherwise it’s never going to happen!
