Do you ever want to tell your boss ‘I quit’?
You’re not alone. And, for good reason.
For many people working for someone else can be a total drainer.
For example, if you’re spending 2 hours a day grinding through peak hour traffic– well that’s 2 hours of your life you never get back.
Working for myself is something I know a little bit about.
I’m 37 now and I haven’t had a boss since my early 20’s.
I actually remember telling my boss “I was out of there” at Origin Energy after I had been there for 2 weeks.
I liked the guy so wanted to break it to him softly. So I said something like:
“Don’t take this personal, but I resign….Don’t worry, it’s not you, it’s me”
And, since then I’ve loved having the freedom and ability to work from home.
I still have to commute across town once a week – but I can time it to avoid rush hour etc.
And, I can drop and pick my kids up from school if I want to.
I usually don’t – but I could.
Now, of course, this is not the right path for everyone.
And, let’s face it.
Society wouldn’t function without the hugely valuable role millions of people play in paid employment.
But, if you are thinking of quitting your payg job and working for yourself in some way, here are some tips.
Tip #1 – Surround yourself with Successful People in Your Industry
It doesn’t matter if you’re already familiar with the industry you want to focus on.
You still need to educate yourself before starting your own business.
Remember you have much more to manage and understand when you’re your own boss.
As well as providing the service, you need to understand the mechanics of the business behind it.
On a surface level, this means knowing about things like proper accounting and how to deal with your taxes.
You don’t need to do this stuff yourself, but you need a basic understanding of it.
If you’re reading this, you probably know enough about this.
What’s more important is to build a network of people who are already doing what you want to do.
Ask them “What are the most important skills to master to be a success in your area”?
Spend time with them and get mentored by them.
This more than anything else will increase your chances of success working for yourself.
Tip #2 – Work on Your “Highest Income Producing” Tasks First
Flexibility is one of the major draws of working for yourself.
You can schedule your time around your family instead of working to someone else’s schedule.
However, many people struggle to maintain their discipline with this newfound flexibility.
They keep putting work off or assume they can work whenever they feel like it.
I actually never had this issue – the need to make money to put food on the table for my family has always been a strong enough motivator!
But, anyway….what you need to is work out the tasks in your business that give you the highest income per hour– and then do them first each day.
No shuffling paperclips – get the right stuff done first!
Then you’re setting each day up to win.
Tip #3 – Treat it as an Experiment
Some of the most successful people in the world have failed many times before they succeeded.
The simple fact is that not every idea you have will work.
That’s why you can treat your projects and ideas as ‘tests’.
Do the smallest minimum test of an idea – and see if it bears fruit.
If it does continue with it. If it doesn’t – next!
If you keep trying new ideas, with ‘minimum viable tests’ then overtime success is almost certain.

Being your own boss can be one of the most rewarding things you’ll do with your life.
But it takes work. Proper preparation will give you a greater chance of success.
I advise setting up your alternative streams of income – whilst your still in your day job.
Now, one strategy many people love to use to replace their income is real estate – because after all everyone needs a roof over their head.
However many people find the upfront costs too high to get going.
But what if you could get a consistent monthly income from real estate…
Without needing a bank loan or a 10-20% deposit on a property?
That’s what you’re going to discover how to do at this new webinar about how to potentially make healthy cashflow from Airbnb properties you don’t even own™.
Queensland mum Nicole went from $0 to around $9,040 per month largely passive income… in just 90 days using this system…
And, now she’ll show you how she did it, so you can potentially create a healthy income too – completely separate to your day job.
