- How to transition from a job into a business
In the intro I talked about losing 85% of my income.
The best 10-year anniversary gift.
Chris: I’ve been in beverage manufacturing for the past five years and I made a quick exit. I’ve been doing copious amounts of research into an idea. It’s a social network for handymen and the not-so-handys to meet up. A vendor and consumer site, where people could post their services. Wait isn’t that Angie’s list?
John: I currently have a job which I’ve wanted to transition away from for some time. Within the past 4 months I’ve been waking up early and going to sleep late building an IT consulting business. I have run into a few limitations based on time and availability though. With the small clientele that I currently have, I’m noticing that it’s already getting difficult to coordinate and schedule appointments with my clients while working my current job. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do to move forward with the given time constraints? I’ve tried to move to nights and weekends to assist my new clients but very rarely does it work for their schedules or they find it too odd that my availability is so limited. It seems like I need to quit my job and take a major financial hit in order to fully realize whether I can reach my consulting goals or not. I’ve heard you and Dan Miller comment on similar situations. The way it was talked about sounded as though it should be possible to juggle both until I can comfortably quit my job. I’m finding that this may not be the case. Am I doing something wrong?
I’ll help you turn your ideas into a business that changes the world (and your bank account). Here’s how.
