Leaving your job for a work at home business opportunity can be a challenge that all of us have to deal with. You can quickly see when you approach the decision that it can be difficult to decide.
Look at your current job and consider what obligations that you have to your business and also to personal relationship in that company. You may have non competes or non disclosures that you have to fulfill, but make sure that you have legal help. Second you need to make sure that you are not going to seriously burn bridges.
Follow that up with considering your family situation. What will it mean to your family as far as housing and food if you leave your job? Will you be able to protect them and will you be too stressful that even if you had more time it will not be enjoyed, or is your current job too much for you to handle at the moment.
Consider the business that you have ahead of you and the business plan that you put together. Each person needs to have a strong business plan where they can see how the product is created, how it is marketed to a target audience, who is that target audience, and how can you fulfill it for them. If you can’t see this then it will be difficult.
Next make sure you can fund your company with the necessary capital. Whether that is from you or that is from some venture capitalists make sure that you are spending it wisely in the areas where you are going to make the most money that you can. Also make sure that if it is from an investor that you have it all figured out in writing before you move forward.
If you have business associates that you are going to partner up with make sure that they are 100% committed. Also make sure that they will provide you with value and support to get people what they want. If they are not going to add value to your business then you might want to consider someone else or that is an extra mouth to feed.
Next take a second to think about what you personally feel about the whole situation and what you would like to do. You have to go where your heart is and you only live once. Some people can make all the money in the world, but they are not happy.
Now that you have this business plan set up, go get started doing something that you enjoy. I would hate to think that you were working at a job and not starting your own business even if you don’t leave. Prepare well for your future because it is hard to trust retirement.
