7 Things you must know to start an online business before quitting your job

Are You Ready to Go Full-Time Online business? There’s no easy way to know whether or not it’s the “right” time to quit a job and work online full-time. Once you leave your job, you also lose your employment income! The following checklist offers a few considerations before you take the plunge.


7 Things you must know to start an online business before quitting your job


1.Day-to-day expenses



How will you cover living expenses such as mortgage payments, food, utilities, childcare, and so forth? Will you be able to set aside funds in case of an emergency? How will you manage your money during “slow periods” in business? How will you cover benefits your employer may have previously covered for you, such as medical, dental, eye care, etc.?


2.Online Business funding


That paycheck sure comes in handy when you need money to run a marketing campaign or pay for one of many expenses. Once you lose your employment income, can you still operate a successful and productive online business?


3.Online Business profitability

How confident are you in your online business’ ability to consistently turn a profit? Online Business has its ups and downs. Some months will be more profitable than others, and at times you may incur significant expenses. Consider waiting at least one full year of profitability before you think about quitting your job. Allows you to experience any trends that may occur during the year. For example, you may find that your most profitable months occur in the summer, while winter sales are languid. This type of knowledge gives you the ability to plan.

4.Business growth


Many people prefer not to quit their jobs until their home businesses are producing a comparable income. It can be very tough to expand your business if you cannot squeeze more time out of an already busy schedule. You will decide whether or not you ready to say good-bye to relatively ‘steady’ income you receive from your job before your business earnings have replaced. Consider how this will impact your lifestyle as well; for example, to help conserve funds, you may have to give up or decrease little luxuries such as dining out or entertainment.


5. Build a Home office


Is there a separate room where you can comfortably operate your Internet business? You can quickly develop aches and pains from spending long hours in an awkward work environment.


6.Risk For Your Business


Even working on a business full-time doesn’t guarantee it’s a success (or continued success). What would you do if your business failed – would you have the option to return to your job? If you are a professional that requires extensive training and up-to-date skills, what would you need to do to respond to your profession if your business didn’t work out?


7.Family support


Quitting your job to concentrate on your online business doesn’t just affect you personally; your entire family is affected by the changes in income and lifestyle. Talk to them about it, particularly any changes that will affect them directly.
