People always ask me, “should I quit my job to start my own business?” I want to run through some important questions you should ask yourself before you leave your job in a hurry. Just wait a moment and think of these questions before you do so, however tempting it is to run out of the door of a job you dislike.

These tips I share with you today are from my personal experience, not from some books I read or videos I saw. Not long ago I was in a job I hated and I just knew there was another way to live.

So I took the time to learn and grow my skills to make myself more able to run my own business, instead of jumping into it unprepared.

I also have a special offer for you in my video with a link to a training I’m going to run about creating an online business.

But back to the five questions you should ask yourself before starting your own business. They are common sense but it is easy to get carried away with enthusiasm, so I’m just warning you to look before you leap.

The steps are connected to these things:

What is your focus right now? Is it one thing or many?

How capable or efficient are you? Do you struggle to manage many different demands or are you comfortable getting things done effectively?

What is your skillset? Do you have the right skills to run a business or do you need to learn more?

Why do you want to run this business? What is your reasoning behind it?

Is this a lasting passion of yours? Or something temporary and short-term?

All these questions are vital to ask when you think you want to quit your job and run your own business. I will go into these in a lot more detail, with advice, in my video here today.

None of the things I mentioned above are hard to achieve, so don’t be put off. When you look deeply into the five questions I describe, you will find that with a few tweaks in your life, you will soon see a clear path ahead. Whether that is quitting your job to start a business or staying in your current job for a while longer.
