It’s Official!! My hubby, Jason quit his job this week. He gave his JOB notice and his last day is in September! Granted, it’s about 4 months sooner than I was thinking he would and probably a year sooner than HE thought he would but living with an entrepreneur, the entrepreneur mindset kinda rubs off I guess! LOL (Isn’t he cute? What a ham, huh?)
He sees me working from home when he’s been out in this 105-degree weather for weeks now… that’s just ONE reason it’s sooner than later I’m sure… it’s really HOT. And working inside the air-conditioned house is very appealing.
Frustration Leads to an Entrepreneur Mindset
Over the last month, Jason has been getting more and more frustrated with his job – have you ever felt this way too? That frustration is key to shifting from an employee mindset to an entrepreneur mindset. I know I have with a couple of my past JOBs. The lack of systems, support and leadership as well as the physical taxing work to his body. SOOOOOO, with my 1000% support of course, he gave his notice the other day.
“Yay!” I said, knowing that will greatly reduce some of his stress and anxiety and be a much better life choice for him. He deserves to be happy doing what he wants.
“I’m scared and excited” he said (something that everyone I know leaving their job or that jumps into a new business says). These feelings are so normal when shifting from having an employee mindset to and entrepreneur’s mindset.
It Always Works Out
Financial reasons are one of the main reasons people don’t leave their jobs sooner. For us, (and my main motto) is: it will all work out in the end. I also say, “no one is going to die if you quit, we’re not going to be homeless, there’s always a way to make it work”.
PLUS… There’s always a way to make more money!
That’s the beauty of being an entrepreneur. Problem is… some of you DON’T BELIEVE IT. You could create a new a program, product, event or service and sell it to make money right now. Yes, you could!!
And so that is what I just did too! See the Technology Training Workshop Series below (or here) for more info! I also had 4 new authors join the Jumpstart Your _____, Volume II compilation book in the last couple weeks. And I could even offer some additional 1on1 calls right now too… SO CAN YOU!
There’s always a way for me and for YOU to make more money you know. You are NOT stuck with what is currently coming in for you if you’re running your own business.
You are definitely not stuck with just what’s in your bank account today.
Shift Your Mindset
You want to STOP THAT LIMITED THINKING and get creative and GET BUSY PROMOTING IT and talking to more people! You just may have to step up with MORE marketing, networking, follow up and sales is all but it’s totally possible no matter WHAT business you have.
After all, those are the foundational activities that keep your business a smooth-running, moneymaking machine!
Jason too, will hit the ground running once he finishes his last day mid-September. He’s locked and loaded and knows exactly what to do to start getting paid as a Voice Over Artist because he’s been doing a coaching program to teach him over the last 6 months. (Of course, he’s got me too which is very helpful.)
Crisis or Opportunity
Life Transitions however, can put a strain on any family or person if they are unexpected. (Even if they are somewhat expected too!)
So, what do you do to stay afloat and sane through it all?
What do you do to stay focused, clear-headed and motivated to see results quickly?
Whether it’s to find another job quickly, ramp up a business, get support for your health if it’s a health crisis, borrow money if it’s a financial crisis… you can choose to look at these things as a crisis OR opportunities. An entrepreneur mindset focuses on the OPPORTUNITY!
What do you do when life hits you? You know the type of hit I’m talking about…
- An illness with you or a loved one
- A defeat or failure in your career or business
- A huge relationship break-up
- Job loss for yourself or spouse
- Death or loss of a person or pet
- Big, unplanned move or home catastrophe
Of course we never expect or want these things to happen but most of them will happen, it’s just a matter of when and with who.
Do you just simply get back up and keep moving forward?
Does it shake you for a few days, a week, longer?
Do you get scared and go “hide”? (metaphorically or literally speaking)
Don’t get me wrong. Even with an entrepreneur mindset, you may still do those things from time to time, just not consistently.
