There’s Never Going to be a Perfect Time for You to Start.

Mindset

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 👇🏼⁣⁣⁣⁣

(1.) Save up at LEAST 6 months worth of expenses before you jump off the deep end ⁣⁣⁣⁣

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 🙌🏼⁣⁣

(2.) Begin establishing your personal brand NOW ⁣⁣⁣⁣

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 💪🏼⁣⁣⁣⁣

(3.) After you’ve saved up some money & started your side hustle, cut back on your work hours at your job ⁣⁣⁣⁣

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.” ❤️⁣
