Do you want to own your business but still stuck in the employment world? Do you want to learn how you can build your business without quitting your job? Is it even possible for you?
In this article, you will learn how you can build your business without quitting your day job, yet. These are the lessons I learned from highly successful people and I am sharing them with you. If you are ready to learn, read on!
1. Never Quit Your Job Because You “Simply” Want to Have a Business
Best-selling author and successful entrepreneur Robert Kiyosaki said that you should never treat your business like your job.
It simply means, don’t quit your job because you hate your job and you want to replace it with a business.
Never replace business to your job because you hate your job. When you do this, you will eventually treat your business like a job and you will eventually hate it.
2. Invest in Yourself
Personality development is essential when you want to have your own business. A change in attitude and mindset are required because having a business and having a job are two different worlds.
Different sets of skills are required for each. If you are a highly paid employee, all of what you learned as an employee will never work when you are in your business.
3. Invest in Your Time
To build a successful business, you will need time. If your business succeeds overnight, you are in big trouble. Take time to grow yourself, take time to learn about your business and take time to make your business grow.
Set a portion of your day focusing in building your business. At work, utilize break time. I’m not saying that you should not take your break. Maybe you can cut your break time in half then the rest of it, for your business.
If you are employed today, do your business in your part time, NOT in your spare time.
4. Invest in Your Resources
If you are blessed with talent and skills and you have a background in business, I’m happy for you. But if it’s a complete shift for you, invest in resources such as seminars, audiobooks, and instructional videos.
It is essential to learn the skills of an entrepreneur.
5. Simply Start Your Business
Zig Ziglar said, “You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.”
Still employed and you have a business idea? Start it right away! The earlier you fail, the better for you. It will be shaky and it will be uncomfortable in the beginning but when you get the hang of your business, you will grow faster.
6. Do it Part-Time
Jim Rohn, a best-selling author and world’s renowned leadership coach, said that use your paycheck to pay for your rent and bills, to place food on the table and to buy for your needs and build your fortune on the side.
Building your business very possible even if you are still an employee. Never get stuck to the idea that you can’t do it. Of course, you can! Being an entrepreneur can be learned. I believe it is possible for you. Start your business today without quitting your job, yet.
