Episode 79 - Ten Tips on How to Make the Transition From Corporate Job to Business Owner
10 tips on transitioning from a corporate job to being a business owner
I don't claim to be a small business consultant. I love career planning and coaching corporate professionals. However, during the coaching process, a client will eventually decide they want out from time to time! When that happens, I share how I transitioned from a corporate employee to a business owner since I have personal experience of starting a business twice. I learned a lot along the way.
This is most definitely a one-off episode. So if you are curious about what I've done to grow my business, how I do it now, how it's going, the tools I use, etc., then listen to this episode because I don't plan to talk about this anymore for a long time!
And this is the truth: I have a handful of clients at the moment who I'm sure have signed up with me because of how I managed to grow my expertise and start my business the way I did. They are doing a very similar transition (i.e., holding on to their corporate jobs until they are ready to fly solo!), and I love coaching them!
Here is the question I have for you: Are you ready to be a business owner? Is having a business a goal you want to work towards, so you can achieve it in a few years?
In this episode of The Job Hunting Podcast, I discuss the following 10 tips I recommend to help you transition from a corporate job to owning your own business in the future:
