Everyone wants to leave their 9-5 jobs but not everyone is really set to be their own boss. This is because not everyone has really built the capacity to stay off a 9-5 without feeling the need to run back in any time soon.
I have come across people who left their 9-5 only to get stuck with even worse jobs and with less or no choice but to walk away soon.
It can be shocking to decide to leave the routine of your daily life and start a new career. I remember leaving mine, I had to ask myself if I wasn’t crazy, even family members and acquaintances asked me the same question, but I left anyways.
3 Important Things to do Before You Leave Your 9-5 Job
Before you ever consider the option of leaving your 9-5 job, you must do the following:
1. Learn New Skills From Experts
If you have already considered leaving the 9-5 streets then you’re surely on your way to starting your entrepreneurial journey which would not be successful unless you have the required skill.
You will need to learn certain skills from experts to help you jumpstart your entrepreneurial journey. Learning from an expert will help you learn from their mistakes and speed up your process towards success.
2. Implement and Build a Proven System Before You Leave Your 9-5 Job
While you are learning all the skills you need, it’s not enough to just have theoretical knowledge, you have to start doing something. In short, you need to have started doing that thing which you want to move to before you finally drop your 9-5 job.
After trying things out and you are convinced that it is substantial enough and worth dropping your 9-5 then that’s a great foot for you to swap. You should never drop your job if you are unsure of what you are moving to.
If you have ever read my story of how I went from a Full-Time Office Assistant to a 6 Figure Consultant, then you probably would already know the importance of this point. But if you haven’t then feel free to read it here after this.
3. Offer Massive Value
Whatever you are doing, offering value cannot be overemphasized. Make use of what you’ve created to solve people’s problems, and offer them solutions.
One mistake newbies make is that they place price before value whereas it is meant to be the reverse. People are only interested in solving their needs and will only pay for what they deem fit as value with the aim to solve their own problems.
The only ideal person that is fit to walk away from his/her 9-5 job is one who has tried a variety of things out and can boldly boast of a viable product or initiative that would bring results in no time.
If you haven’t already attained that stage and you hope to be able to finally walk away from your 9-5 job soon, what you have to do is simply, build capacity, learn, implement and grow into that person that would thrive after a 9-5.
