Do Not Quit Your Job to Start a Business Yet
This New Year you do not have to quit that job to become an entrepreneur. Just like not everyone can become a doctor not everyone is created to be an entrepreneur. We all have different strengths. Some of us do best to follow a routine and do delegated jobs while others cannot fit in a box. Some people are created with a creative mind, a resilient spirit and a risk taking attitude. Businesses have a lot of challenges and risks you must have the calling and the spirit of not giving up. Entrepreneur Tonnie Mello has advice that he gives based on this topic.
He says that if one has a great job that pays you well for your work and gives you the opportunity to change someone’s life then there is no need of quitting or resigning. He says that a business cannot be classified as a n occupation but as a calling. There are so many sacrifices that you must make like sleepless nights, loss relationships and many more.
He insists that you should never be ashamed of working for someone else. He says all of us in one way or another work for someone. An entrepreneur who manufactures cars works for you to ensure you get the best car that you will buy. Most entrepreneurs just tell you of the success part of their story. They never reveal t you the debts they have, the risks they have taken and the struggles they face every day in the business. Each day comes with new risks. He further elaborated that entrepreneurs live on faith. You do not know if tomorrow you will get customers or not. You just do it with the hope that new customers will come tomorrow.
There are a number of entrepreneurs who take shortcuts and are search for a quick fix. These entrepreneurs taint the image of business and the entrepreneurs who have labored to get to where they are.
Therefore do not drain all your savings or retirement money to venture into a business. Do not get into any business that you are not familiar with. Therefore this year do not quit your job to start a business to look cool but stick tio what you have and give it your all.
