3 Things you need to do if you want to quit your toxic job
Should you quit your corporate job or not? YES, TOTALLY!
Whether it’s a corporate job or not, my answer is yes.
But make sure you’re going to be financially sound when you do that.
You may have decided that you want to have your own business and can’t wait to get started, but think about it.
If you quit your job and the money stops and your coaching business doesn’t take off, that will create more financial pressure on you to perform. No one wants that kind of pressure. .
Consider this instead:
- Is coaching the right fit for you?
In the online space, if you want to be coaching people, then you need to do it from a place of service.
It can’t be all about the money. If it is, you’re in the wrong profession.
Coaching should be a passion for you. Coaching is serving and people who do it well absolutely love it.
For me, I help people make money online and I get a kick out of seeing them win.
Seeing them get paid and growing their business into something amazing is my passion – it lights me up. Yes it’s great to get paid, but I truly love to see others win!
You need to be in it for the right reasons. You have to be in it because you really want to help.
2. Try to mix the two – to retain some balance
Get yourself in a position where you can do both the coaching job and your regular job.
When I was working in my corporate job it really made me feel depressed and I knew I had to get out.
If you can do a mix of both it’s much better mentally. You’ll be getting some money coming in while you’re building the business you’re passionate about.
When this happens, you won’t have so much financial pressure. An added bonus is that you can invest in systems that will really help your business grow rather than trying to cobble together free systems that don’t necessarily work.
You need to consider the customer journey and how that is going to work too, so if you’re using a whole lot of free systems that don’t really make sense the customer journey will be broken and it won’t be an enjoyable experience for your clients.
The goal here is to make sure that you can create and purchase systems that actually work for your business, work for your clients, and are easy to use.
3. Get some coaching
The third thing I would add is to get some coaching. If you’re trying to grow your business, get some help and invest in someone that you really like who has achieved the result that you want, in a way that you want.
Not everybody achieves the result the same way and you might find that your new coach’s methods are not in alignment with your own, so do your research.
Work with someone who is ethically aligned with you, and that you feel that you have a connection with.
The thought of leaving a job is enticing for sure, but you need to have the mental capacity to cope with starting a new business, the finances and the systems to make everything work well.
I do not recommend putting yourself under financial pressure as well.
One thing I will say about coaching though … is that it is the fast track out. The free route is fine, and I’ve done that too, but nothing moved the needle more for me than signing up with a coach who had done it before. They’ve walked that path, they’ve made mistakes and they found what works and what doesn’t. That’s what you’re paying them for.
To help you avoid those issues.
I hope that helps if you’re thinking about leaving your toxic job.
Consider the things I’ve mentioned so that your transition into the online space is nice and easy and you’re not suffering from financial hardship as you’re growing your business and learning as you go.
