There’s plenty of reasons to quit your job and work for yourself.
Lifestyle, atmosphere, plateauing, you name it.
Besides money, here are 5 reasons to quit your job and work for yourself.
Reason 1: You are doing the wrong thing. If you are great at sales but not working in sales, you are wasting your time and energy. You have to work doing something you like and enjoy. Doing anything else is a waste. Find something that you love to do, and figure out a way to make money doing it.
Reason 2: Co-workers suck. Besides working in the same place, chances are that you do not have much in common with most of your co-workers. Unless you have one of these. If you are going to spend 8 hours a day among people, spend it with people who will make you better. If you have a business goal, find people with similar goals. Form a mastermind group. Find successful people you want to emulate and befriend them. Learn from them. Co-workers, in a job you most likely don’t see yourself in for the rest of your life, will not make you a better person.
Reason 3: Same Old Same Old. Chances are if you’ve been working in the same place for a while, you are always complaining about the same old stuff. When your work becomes routine day in and day out, you are no longer making progress. And if the same things keep bothering you at your job day in and day out, you probably need to move on.
Reason 4: No promotions. I’ve had a few jobs before I started working for myself. The longest lasted 3 year. I got promoted once in those 3 years. The other jobs I wanted to get promoted but couldn’t. At my insurance job I guess they thought I was a better salesman than I would be manager. There’s something wrong when new hires would become office managers withing 3 months and top salesman can’t get promoted. I find myself getting bored after having a job for a year. I can’t be the only one. There’s a point when things get old, and if you are not constantly moving up the ladder, quit wasting your time.
Reason 5: You are making someone else money. If you have a regular 9 to 5, this is a problem. Whether you love or hate your job. More so if you hate it. But if you love what you do, why not figure out a way to do it for yourself and make yourself that money instead of making it for the big boss and letting them decide how much you make. Take fate into your own hands and become the big boss.
Until Next Time
