WANT TO BECOME SELF-EMPLOYED? HERE ARE SOME STEPS TO QUITTING YOUR DAY JOB?
If you’re dreaming of quitting your day job and becoming self-employed, there are several tips you can follow to get started. No matter what type of service you plan to offer as a freelancer, contractor, coach, or consultant, these tips can help.
First and foremost, aim to secure a major contract that will take up at least one-third of your time or provide one-third of your desired income. This will give you a solid foundation to start contracting and help you transition from your day job.
Before leaving your current job, consider proposing a part-time situation where you can work as a contractor for your current employer. This can help you maintain a steady income while building your business on the side. You never know, your employer may have projects or tasks that they’d like you to manage for a short or ongoing period.
TO INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF SUCCESS – FOCUS ON ALIGNING THESE THREE ELEMENTS:
YOUR OFFERING – YOUR IDEAL CLIENTS – AND THEIR SENSE OF URGENCY
Take the time to define your offering, pricing, and value-add while also identifying your ideal clients and refining your ideal client avatar to include those who have a sense of urgency for your service.
When these three elements are aligned, your marketing becomes easier, and you’ll be more effective in convincing clients to opt-in. You’ll be clear on the value you offer and how you can help them during their time of need. With a strong connection between these three things, your closing ratio will improve significantly, and you’ll be on your way to a successful self-employment journey.
