Inspiring you! When should you quit your job?

Hey Lovelies
I know as the new year came, a lot of people have made plans to embrace new challenges; to find ways to get a better turnout at the end of the year.

You will hear many motivational speakers tell you that when you want to make it in your own business, you should quit your job. The idea is so you can channel all your energy into making it work. 

And they usually remember this quote by Tony Gaskins but misinterpret it
"When you don't have a goal, someone else will hire you to chase theirs"
There is nothing wrong with working for someone even when you have an idea that can change your world. You must start from somewhere, and you must start at the right time. 

Think! Plan! Strategize!

So many people make the mistake of quitting their jobs just when they find the inspiration for a new business idea. Having a business idea doesn't necessarily mean that it is time to launch out. Sometimes, you need months, even years to strategize properly. A successful business involves a lot of planning and calculated moves.

People often say that when people get a pressing need to start up a business, to make it a success, they decide to give it their all by leaving their jobs. More often than not, it could be a huge mistake. Not the fact of deciding to give it all it takes, but the easy definition of it. I'll tell you that most times, your idea of sacrificing your job is actually a case of taking the easy way out. What makes you think you can't work both until you have strategized effectively? Sometimes, it might take a little investment - working harder than you should. As easy as it may sound, it is such a huge challenge.

I'm not unaware that one of the reasons people usually quit their jobs is to burn the bridges that could lead back to where they can easily abandon their pursuit. When you quit your job you have made up your mind to not give up no matter what it takes to make it. It takes a lot of perseverance and discipline to try to manage both jobs, I understand. But at the end of the day, it is a thing of the mind. Condition your mind that you will never give up and you may not really need to put your job away. 

People leave their jobs sometimes because they saw an idea that was unbelievably awesome and what they usually anticipate is this idea being able to generate income as soon as the thought itself comes. Along the line, a good idea becomes cheapened and turns out to be a real mediocre of what it could have been, out of unnecessary desperation and rush. Having a job already presents money that you can use to fund your idea. No matter how small your salary is, if you put it together well, it can amount to something. 
What is the essence of quitting your job to start a business and then you find yourself running around financial institutions to get a loan to start off? Think about it, most times it is ignorance that makes people take the first step at quitting their jobs. With adequate planning, you can save up your salary and be able to use that to kick things off effectively. You usually need to start with where you are and with what you have. It is bad when you have absolutely nothing, but you will agree with me that will not be the case when you have a job that is already paying. 

Dear lovelies, When should you quit your job? When your business can fund itself and provide enough to take care of your primary needs. 

Love always

    I was selling my books, I was making hair butters, I ran a neighbourhood newsletter, I was editing books for writers, and the failed one was one okada business I wanted to start. When I quit, I knew it was time to quit. My editing business sustained me for long after I quit.
