Must-Read: Work For Yourself
One of the best decisions of our life was, one day, about five years ago, quitting our job just to work freelance full-time. It was a risk — at that time we weren’t making nearly enough to survive — but the thought process was that we could work for ourselves, whenever we want, and maybe make MORE money than we currently were. And, turns out, it worked. Five years later and we are making more money than we ever have and love what we’re doing.
This is kind of the same thing as starting up our own business. And while we certainly have many tips that we could offer you, we are not yet comfortable saying that we’re “experts” in any way. So today we’re heading to AskMen.com where they have a list of ways to get your business off the ground. Among their tips:
Consider your motivations
I suppose there’s no bad reason to catch the entrepreneurial bug, but some are better than others. If you simply had a bad week at work or have a boss you dislike in a career you otherwise enjoy, that’s probably not enough to motivate you to really throw yourself into creating something on your own. Do you do something so well that you could leave the confines of corporate America and still make money? Have you thought of something that doesn’t yet exist? Do you want to change the world? Do you see few other viable options? For my part, while my job search is still ongoing, I figured if no one else would, I should at least be able to hire myself.
So head on over to the link for the rest of the tips and get that business started, tell your current boss where to stick it, and then start working for yourself. Nothing is better.
