A common scenario in the creative entrepreneur world early on in launching a business is working your passion-driven business part-time for a few years while still holding onto a part-time job for security. Typically you are afraid to break free from the j-o-b, therefore you feed the frustrating cycle of “If I was full-time I could get so much more done in my business and feel so much more fulfilled, but…!”
Fill in the “but…” Sound familiar?
First let me clarify it’s totally acceptable to have money coming in from part-time work as you build your dream business for the first year or two. If you are hanging onto your part-time job after 3-4 years, you are a candidate for compassionate coaching to help you breakthrough your fears, barriers and limiting mindset.
10 years ago when I started my coaching company, I made a promise to myself within the first 12-15 months – I would quit my two part-time jobs and go full-time in my coaching business. I made it happen (in the middle of the 2008 major U.S. recession) and took my new business to the next level.
This month, May 2018, I celebrate 10 years in business!
