You’ve come so far with your entrepreneurial, side-hustling journey & now it’s officially time to #taketheleap!
Before you go handing in your resignation letter, yelling “sayonara suckers!” around the office & popping the bubbly, we need to get down to business.
And yes, I know, I’m a party pooper, but I do it because I care.
Going into full-time business, whilst super exciting, is also a pretty huge step. So it goes without saying that it’s important to make sure that you’re really ready to dive in the deep end!
And if you can say a big “hell yeah!” to each & every one of these points I’m about to go through, then girl, hand in that letter & pop that bubbly!!
Here we go…
You Know Your Vision
If there’s one thing I know about you, the #ladyboss that has all her ducks in a row, it’s that you know your vision.
And no, I’m not talking about your short term vision, but I’m talking about your long term vision too. Like, a few years away vision even!
I can tell you here & now that you are ready to quit your 9-5 when you know exactly what it is that you want from your business and for your business.
This is a crucial step that so many aspiring entrepreneurs miss. They lack clarity in their vision & their “why”, and in the end, it’s what unravels them.
Because when you’re unclear about the future, it makes the present a whole lot harder to navigate.
Your Finances Are Sorted
Anothing thing I know about you is that you’re seriously about money. You don’t avoid your bank accounts or fret when a bill comes in – you know exactly how much money you’re bringing in (+ from where!) & you treat money with respect.
Plus, with the consistent income you’re bringing in, you know that all of your bills (personal and business related) are covered!
Inside The Becoming Boss Society we talk about knowing your “bare minimum” & how this is one of the most important things to do before you even think about being ready to quit your 9-5.
Because quitting your day job with an inconsistent stream of income in your business is fools play, and you understand that.
You’ve got an exit & entry plan
Rather than hoping for the best, you’ve got it all mapped out (smart pants!)
From your exit plan (aka quitting your 9-5) to your entry plan (aka transitioning into full-time entrepreneurship), you have everything laid out in front of you & you’re hella clear about what needs to happen & when.
You know exactly when you’re going to quit, how it’s going to happen & who you’re going to have to give the bad (read: AMAZING!) news to!
Not only that, but because you understand how many more hours you’re going to have in a day when you go full-time, you’ve got that mapped out too.
You aren’t about to jump into full-time biz without a game plan, are you?!
You’ve built a solid community
Aha! By now, you’ve created an incredible community of loyal followers & fans and customers & clients.
You understand that in order for others to learn from you, listen to you & eventually purchase from you, that you need to deliver loads of value. And that’s exactly what you’ve been doing!
Plus, you also understand that being visible is a crucial part of being a successful full-time entrepreneur (which a lot of people miss!)
People truly do look to you for guidance & see you as someone they can look up to, and that is amazing.
And, you’re always the first person to be mentioned in conversations when something comes up that you’d be perfect at! Hello referrals!
You’re thinking like a business owner
Not only are you super clear on your vision, have your finances in order, have a thriving community of die-hard fans & have a plan for your future, but you’re thinking like a business owner.
You aren’t sweating the small stuff anymore – you’re in what I call inside my membership “the CEO mindset”.
You know exactly what tasks need to be done (+ which don’t!) and you’re focusing on progress over perfection; working on the tasks that are moving your business forward, not backwards.
And, if there’s one more thing about you, it’s that you know that your business is a business & you will stop at nothing to see it thrive & mould into the vision you dreamt up all that time ago.
So, my beautiful side-hustler, if you’re confident that you tick all of the boxes above, then guess what…
You’re ready! Dive in, go for it, do the thing! Now is your time to go full-time!
But, if you’re feeling not-so-confident or like you’re not quite there, that is what I created The Becoming Boss Society for.
Inside the membership, I help ladies just like you, working their day jobs in hopes to one day quit them & take their businesses full-time, to do just that!
Through my signature 4-Step Freedom Framework, monthly courses, masterclasses, live Q&A’s (+ more!), I’ll take you through everything you need to know (+ do!) to quit your 9-5 & take your business full-time!
