How to escape your job and start a business
When planning your escape from the 9-5 grind by starting a business it can seem overwhelming.
Often the reasons not to do it loom larger than the reasons to do it. The dreaded ‘What Ifs’ creep in and you put the desire to leave on hold until XYZ has happened.
Fast forward another year and you are still there.
From my experience of working with startups they share very similar worries, some founded and some imagined:
1. Money worries: What if I don’t make enough money
2. I don’t know what business to start: I have too many or no ideas
3. Who am I kidding, I’m not an entrepreneur: What if I fail
4. Will enough people buy from me?: I don't know what the market looks like
5. I don’t want to waste my time and money on the wrong business: If only I could try before I commit
Do any of those sound familiar to you?
I know I have faced all of them when I have been setting up my businesses. The good news is that they can be worked through simply.
