Job To Business Transition

coaching Aug 21, 2019

Each month, l’ll be answering your questions about anything related to healing and transformation, connecting with yourself, discovering your gifts and practical strategies on sharing your gifts with the world, or… any burning question you have and sense that I’m the right person to answer it!

This week I answer a question from Jenny.

“I finally feel like I’ve found my purpose and started my own business but ended up back in a job when it didn’t work out. How can I make sure that doesn’t happen again?”

Now there are key first steps that one must take in order to build a strong foundation when transitioning into a new way of working and a few things to avoid. I am going to answer this question within the context of you already knowing what it is you want to do, but for anyone listening who doesn’t yet know; that is the very first step! If you haven’t yet sorted that part, check out some of my episodes around discovering your gifts.

The #1 mistake to avoid BEFORE starting your transition from job to business is acting out of fear. 

Fear is a big one for sure. Most people wanting to leave their jobs and start a business have fears about it. Fear of failure – what if I try and don’t succeed? Some have a fear of success – what if things go really well, how will I cope while still in my 9-5? Fear of uncertainty or financial instability -right now in my job I make a decent income, how can I be sure that I’ll be able to match that?

The thing is there are strategies to overcome ALL of these obstacles!

So you must avoid acting out of fear. Here’s what happens when you don’t avoid it – one of two things happen; you move quickly into something else without going through proper steps and end up in the same position somewhere else. OR worse, you stay put because it feels easier, though that approach is a like double edge sword. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t, right?

Listen in for some of my top strategies on creating a strong foundation for moving from your job to your dream business.
