We've all been there: That dragging job that drains us of our energy, guts us of our dreams and makes us wake up in the morning wondering if this is really what we were born to do.
For many of us there is
that million dollar idea that burns inside and with each passing day
gets more stale. It is a hard decision to make between leaving the
comfort of a stable job and building something of your own. What about
the salary? The benefits? The dependents? The 401K?
All those luxuries disappear the minute you turn the company laptop in for the last time.
Conversely a recent survey of 2,500 people, including 500 small business owners, conducted on behalf of Invoice2go found that 60% said they’re committed to the idea of working for themselves rather than an employer, citing an interest in following their passion (57%), a belief that they could be of benefit to others (53%) and a need to set their own schedule (52%).
So how do YOU know if it's time to jump ship?
entrepreneur that has started their journey after working for another
company has had this question: "Am I living up to my potential?"
The answer might be as simple as a role change, a jump into a new career, and maybe, just maybe...a light bulb that is the fact that it's time to start your own journey.
If you are finding it hard to get motivated to participate, to lead, to achieve, etc. there is definitely a root cause. It does not always have to be work related. It could be in your personal life. However every day that passes where you are not giving it your all ends up being a day that you wish you had back.
