Entrepreneurship is anything but easy and hence may be the most aspiring entrepreneurs are stuck in that 9-to-5 job. Most people do have an idea as to what they want to do, how to do, yet what is lacking is that first step to begin that business. That stability, the regular paycheck, the regular working hours is all very difficult to leave. Yet some guts are all it is required to leave that job and chase your entrepreneur dreams. Here are few signs that you should quit your job and become an entrepreneur:
- YOU HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT QUITTING SINCE AGES
You have been having thoughts about wanting to quit that job every now and then. You just can’t hold those thoughts back and they keep on popping in your mind frequently. However, holding off those thoughts and not working on them isn’t healthy. If you feel strongly about quitting, start working towards doing so.
- YOU HAVE A PLAN
It takes more than just an idea to be an entrepreneur. You need to have a proper concrete plan to fulfill those ideas. A plan based on proper research, a realistic plan on how to advance further towards achieving your goals is needed. If you have done your homework well, you should quit your job to start your own business.
- YOU DON’T FEEL EXCITED ABOUT YOUR WORK ANYMORE
Your work now feels like a boring routine. You don’t feel any passion about doing your job do you feel excited about going to the office anymore. You keep on feeling that you could have been doing better instead. The days feel like a drag. This is a big sign as to why you should quit your job and do what you love.
- YOU FEEL THAT PAY IS NOT WORTH IT
Every month when you get the pay, you do not feel happy about getting it. You feel empty and that the pay is not worth it. For you working is more valuable than money received. You do not feel satisfied. That is when you should get the clue of quitting the job and working towards your dream.
- YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR PASSION LIES
Your job pays well, you have a good working environment, a good job profile but it is not your passion. Hence you doubt yourself and what you are doing. If you know what your passion is, if you have got a plan on how to pursue it, leave everything and pursue it. Taking the first step would be difficult, rest everything will fall in places.
- YOU HAVE BEEN SAVING FOR IT SECRETLY
You have been saving secretly for your start-up and hence have been working towards it since long. You know how important it is to have savings for such a start-up and you may not generate profits initially. However, if you feel you have saved enough and can start working towards setting up the business, leave your job.
- YOU HAVE REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS
Sure you have a dream, a plan but you also have some expectations from it. However be sure that those expectations are very realistic and would not disappoint you in future. Keeping high expectations may make you fall flat on your face. Yet, having expectations is a must and necessary so that you know where you have to reach.
