Signs You're Ready to be Your own Boss

When is the right time to quit your job and become the Boss FULL TIME?! Starting your own biz or taking the leap from side hustle to full time Boss is intimidating. It’s like asking yourself when is the right time to have kids? Is there really a right time? Here are some clear signs that helped me leap into full time entrepreneurship.

You’ve always had that inner fire

Have you always had this little whisper or feeling like I am meant for something more. This isn’t all there is. I could run this. I am running this, but for someone else.

You’re not fitting into the box

Your employer expects you to fill a certain role, during specific hours and you constantly running into employer/employee obstacles that leave you feeling exhausted. If your partner or friends are tired of hearing about what happened today at work that’s making you want to quit, then this is a big sign it’s time.

You’re a Dreamer and Do-er

You’ve got big ideas that will actually make a difference in people’s lives and your willing to do the work. In your current position, your ideas are constantly being shut down because its too out of the box for them or not aligned with their way of doing things.

You need more Vacation

Okay, so not the main reason to quit your job, but I feel a valid one. I’ve left many positions because they wouldn’t approve my vacation time. A girl’s gotta have balance and vacations make me better at what I do. Plus, I feel this is another sign that ‘they’ are trying to get you to fit in their box.

9-5 feels like Torture

Don’t get me wrong, I am not afraid of working hard, but I do like to create my own schedule. Working when I am most creative or in the right head space whether it be 5am or 8pm allows me to get better results. I tried the 9-5 because, well, I had to try it and it was torture. I was moody, unhappy, eating at weird times and the wrong things, and not fitting in my me time whether it be going to the gym or catching up with friends. Sitting in rush hour with everyone else cut so much time out of my day. Also, just because everyone else is doing it doesn’t mean that it’s right for you.


If these signs are speaking to you, it’s time to leap. I know it’s scary! For me, having someone coach me through every step of the way was a huge reason I found success. From helping me change my mindset to organizing my underwear drawer, having each area of your life handled, creates successful entrepreneurs. Honestly, the world opened up for me, doors I didn’t even know were there started to open and I know the same will happen for you. If you’re ready to take the leap and want me to hold your hand along the way to create a mindset for successes and a business to match, send me a message. After all who can promise more job security than you?!
