9 To 5 Job: 5 Best Things To Consider Before Quitting

Are you a 9 to 5 Job employee? And you are thinking of quitting? Well you are not in this alone.

Not everybody wants to leave their 9 to 5 job, some people love the feeling that they can always tender their resignation letter any day and leave without being tied down by ownership. Some others hate the hustle and bustle of running a firm, company or any business organization at all. Now if you are one of those, please skip this post or rather recommend them to a friend who needs them because this article is only for those who desire a “no boss” source of livelihood.

It’s time to start making the move when you’ve made a plan to leave your current job and start your new one. And not before. This is something to keep in mind before you tender that resignation letter.

You can either leave your current career and start your new venture immediately, or you can start it as a side job while continuing to work in your current position.

But the most important part of leaving your 9-5 is to make a plan. A plan that will actually work and hold out in the long run.

Leaving Your 9 to 5 Job: What Next?

1. Make a Schedule

Making the transition from a full-time employee to a full-time freelancer is a significant step. Set a timeframe for when you plan to make the shift to make it more concrete. When things get tough, this might help you stay accountable and inspired.

Setting a specific date will allow you to inform your supervisor of your future plans. This will help you keep in mind that you are working with a time limit and will motivate you the more.

2. Make a goal for yourself

Everyone has their motivations for quitting their work and going on the journey of self or solopreneurship. Figure out the big goal you want to attain in that time frame once you’ve made a schedule for when you’ll be leaving your employment.

Remember to make sure that the goal is specific and attainable. Write down the goal and the time you hope to achieve it, don’t tuck it away in your drawer, frame it rather and keep it on your working desk where you can glance at it from time to time.

3. Set a plan

After you’ve determined what your goal is and how long you believe it will take to attain it, the following step is to plan out the steps you’ll take to get there. What you desire to undertake should be researched. Before you begin, you must be certain about the field you wish to pursue.

If your goal is to make more money, using your previous work experience is the fastest way to get there. Many people use their professional skills to help them move to solopreneurship more smoothly while others may use their passion. There’s no manual hewed in stone, just do what you do best.

4.  Begin by doing it as a side job

Most people begin their solopreneurship journey by doing it part-time while still working full-time. This reduces the chance of failing. This allows you to try your hand at hustling and landing clients without committing completely.

You can test whether you can do this full-time by freelancing or working on your solo career during your free time.

However, this is not the perfect realistic reflection of reality. The question is: Are you really going to give it your all to be successful with freelancing if you have the security of a guaranteed salary from your employment to fall back on? Procrastinating and putting it off to a supposedly better time can suffocate your motivation before it even begins.

5 Obtain a sufficient number of consumers ahead of time

How many gigs or projects do you need to feel comfortable quitting? Do you know?

You’ve set aside enough money for downtime, so now you need to consider whether the clients you have will allow you to cover your monthly expenses. Make a strategy for gaining new clients as you go. Being a solopreneur entails being a hustler as well. Just because you have steady gigs or sell your products or services this month doesn’t imply things would look the same next month.

Some days would not be all rosy, so it is important to have a plan in place when a customer reduces your work or ends the contract.
