It's time to Fire Your Boss, but how will you do it? Are you really ready?
Design with Ease
Do you have a design in mind for your blog? Whether you prefer a trendy postcard look or you’re going for a more editorial style blog - there’s a stunning layout for everyone.
So you're ready to fire your boss, but you've figured out by now that anything done in haste or without a solid plan well is doomed and set for failure. The last thing you want to do is leave your security blanket, benefits, and your reputation of always making the right decisions (and of course never taking risks) behind. So what do you do?
Well you're right! There has to be a plan and a good one. We call this your Corporate Exit Strategy Plan.
Do Your RESEARCH
Starting a business is not the easiest thing to do but if you plan for it, it can be the most rewarding thing you've ever done in this lifetime. I'm talking flexibility in your schedule, financial freedom, work from anywhere you want to rewarding, and oh yeah more time with the ones that matter the most. You have to do your research though.
Connect + Collaborate -Be sure to start connecting with entrepreneurs before you quit your 9-to-5. Find out what some of their challenges were in starting up and how they overcame them.
Play the numbers game - That's right baby crunch those numbers! It is important to know how much it will cost to run your business and what expenses you have and will need to cover even when the money isn't rolling in. Now if you're looking at all the "Glam Bosses" on instagram, then you probably think that as soon as your business launches you'll be making millions. - The results are in and we've determined that's a lie.
There will indeed be days where you are wondering where your customers and clients are and the truth is every business has an "off-season" For example, it's summer time and no one cares about educating themselves or doing anything extra with professional development. Well a Business Strategist like yours truly knows that sales and packages normally suffer around this time, but I also know that in January when people are making their New Year resolutions, they are also thinking about doing more in their business and investing in their professional development. Ensuring that I am knowledgeable about this and my numbers will help me better plan for my business "off-season"
