REAL TALK: There’s never going to be a perfect time for you to start.
There, I said it 🤷🏽♀️
As humans, that are typically afraid of change and the unknown, we’re always going to have some reason as to why we “can’t” or “shouldn’t” do something 🤪
“I don’t have the money.”
“I am way too busy.”
“What if it’s not a good idea?”
“What if I fail?”
“What if no one supports me?”
Imagine if I had used these excuses before launching my blog or even @galgetaway…. you likely wouldn’t be here reading this right now!! 😏
Well here’s the thing, while I don’t believe there’s ever a perfect time to start, I do believe there are PRACTICAL ways to 👇🏼
Going your own route is all fun and games until you realize you can’t pay your bills 🤪
With each new paycheck you receive, begin to set some money aside so you have a bit of cushion for when you take the leap.
SUGGESTION: Listen to The Dave Ramsey Show for in depth discussions on how to make smart financial decisions in business AND in life 🙌🏼
If you REALLY want to be your own boss and you SAY you’re willing to do “whatever it takes” to make it happen, then uh…. 👀
Why aren’t you starting on your side hustle now????
Why wait when you HAVE some $$$ cushion with your job NOW, to begin tinkering around with the ideas you’ve been craving to pursue??
SUGGESTION: Read @garyvee’s book, “Crushing It.” It will whip you into shape REAL fast 💪🏼
This is more of a personal tip, but it’s one that has, in the past, helped (1.) create a smoother transition for me, (2.) freed up a little more time to pursue my passions, and (3.) gave me even MORE money to work with when I was fully self employed 💃🏽
Again, there’s never going to be a perfect time, and we’re always going to have our “stuff,” but don’t be the person looking back later in life wondering “What if.” ❤️
