When An Entrepreneur Is Faced With Getting A Job

Many of my clients are experts that decide they want to own their own business and showcase their expertise. On occasions, I meet prospective clients that have already made the leap, and now because of finances feel like they must go back to work. First and foremost, I want to say if you are an expert in your industry and you are ready to commit to doing the work, you can change your finances drastically in 30 days or less with the right positioning and strategic communicative sequencing. With that being said, don’t beat yourself up if you have to get a job.

A job can feed your entrepreneur ventures

At a recent conference, I met a woman that was really beating herself up because she had just accepted a job. When I was able to grab a private moment with her, I gave her a few tips and strategies and most importantly, I told her let me help you set up your exit strategy.

She broke down and cried.

If you need to get a job and you truly want to be an entrepreneur, there are some simple things you can consider:

  1. Create an exit strategy – Know up front what milestones you want to achieve in order to quit. This could be so much money in savings or it could be so much revenue coming in or a certain amount of clients. This is what personally will satisfy you. A great coach can help you figure this out.
  2. Do the job with excellence – I believe many people do just enough to stay at the job. This is a mistake. I can tell you when I left my day job, the owners of that company were my first clients. There colleagues and friends became my clients. Why? Because I operated in excellence. They knew what I was capable of doing and knew that I was the best at it.
  3. Celebrate having the income – There are still a lot of people in this world that are unemployed, just wishing for a job. Being grateful for the job and the income will help keep your mind clear and fresh and you will make better decisions. Decisions made under stress may not necessarily be the best decisions. Having the income you know your basic needs are being met. You can have fun and take your time creating the business and life you love.

If you are an expert in your industry and you are looking for an exit strategy, complete this form and schedule a consultation. It could be simpler than you think to move away from your job.
