After you’ve overcome the challenge of figuring out whether working from home is something that’s a good fit for you, however, you have a whole new challenge to overcome: transitioning out of your 9—5 office job and into working from home full-time!
If you want to quit your 9 to 5 job, first of all, you should DEFINITELY grab this cheat sheet on the 5 things you need to do before you quit your day job as well as this worksheet on creating your freelance services webpage.
And second, here are a few things you’ll want to think about if you’re going to start working from home full-time…
1) What type of service will you offer?
Be as specific as possible! This will enable you to figure out if you need to do some more professional development in a certain area, and what you can do to improve your skills so you’re an expert in your industry.
By the way, the more you know exactly what kinds of services you will (and will NOT) offer, the more that you’ll be able to identify who your ideal client is and the best tactics for marketing your business.
Plus, if you are very clear on your freelance services webpage about the types of freelance services you provide to clients, more clients will be able to see exactly how their specific business fits in with what you do.
2) What kind of timeline are you looking at in terms of when you’ll start working from home full-time?
If you don’t have an actual deadline and a timeline mapped out for how you’re going to manage all of your tasks, you might NEVER end up actually working from home full-time. Really! Having a strategy in place is an absolute must if you’re serious about quitting your 9 to 5 job and starting a home-based business.
3) What does success look like to you?
Success means something a little different to everyone. What does YOUR version of success look like, and what steps do you need to achieve your goals?
4) Are you financially, physically, and mentally prepared for transitioning to working from home full-time?
Have some savings to help you get by the first couple of learner months when you do end up quitting your 9 to 5 job. Make sure your home office is ready for you to start working from home full-time. And ensure that you (and your loved ones!) are ready to manage the stress and commitment of running your own business.
