It’s a difficult question to answer… Should I quit my job before starting a business?
As with most major life decisions, the answer is it depends.
Personally, I’m a little biased though.
Over the past few years I’ve grown multiple side hustles into the five and six-figure range before quitting my job to pursue them full-time.
For me, the question of should I quit my job before starting a business was never much of a debate.
I had bills to pay. I’d been burnt before by quitting my job (too soon) in order to start a business. My risk tolerance wasn’t high enough to put all of my savings on the line without income already flowing in.
I needed more assurance—the closest I could possibly get to a guarantee that my business would work before quitting my job.
So, I’ve learned to make sacrifices that allow me to grow my side hustles up to profitability before quitting a job.
