You are at a dead end job, there is “promise” for promotion and growth, but you haven’t seen it. You are working according to someone else’s schedule and are missing precious time with your family. Let’s face it, you aren’t fulfilled working like this. But I got you girl! I am going to walk your through how to quit your 9-5 and grow your business.
I have been there, and wanted my business to be successful SO BAD. But I didn’t know how to get there. Looking back on where I was to where I am now, I’m shocked by the abilities I didn’t even know I had in me! The hard work and tears and doubt, I felt it all! And if you haven’t already, chances are you will feel it too. But no matter the struggle, look at where I am now. I quit my job literally last month, and get to be with my kid all day and do what I love. Serving creatives who want their time back!
Step one to grow your business to replace your 9-5 is creating a strong brand! Branding is so much more than just a color palette. Think about the experience you want your client’s to have as they interact with your social media platforms and website. Speaking of websites, YOU NEED ONE! Be sure that your website reflects your brand and looks professional. You want it to be the best representation of your business!
Next step is to get on social media! I know we all hate this, but social media is where I have made tons of connections I otherwise wouldn’t have. One social media connection has brought me in 6 leads. And ⅚ turned into PAYING clients! Not to brag myself up too much, but that is amazing! Not only will you grow in clients and income, but you will also gain a great support system and community to support and love on you.
Growing your business requires some hustle! You’ve probably heard this before, but you’ve got to put in the work and be disciplined if you want your business to succeed. Look for opportunities of growth and connection. You’ll probably be working on this after your 9-5 job and that’s totally okay! That’s what I did for almost a YEAR with a 1 year old. It’s so hard, but let me tell you. So worth it.
Final step to grow your business and quitting your 9-5 is to learn everything you can now. Make mistakes now, while you’re still growing your business and learning from those around you. This is the perfect time to totally suck, and then come back better than ever before. My friend told me once, “It’s ok to suck.” We all have to start somewhere, and we all aren’t going to be amazing right off the bat. Give yourself the time to suck. Because you’re going to, so just accept it now.
Starting your business is a wild ride. And then deciding that you are at a place where you can quit your 9-5 job feels overwhelming. Trust me, you can do this! Growing your business takes a lot of hard work, but is simple. Let’s chat about how we can get you there!
