Could You Leave Behind The 9-5?


Leave 9-5

Quitting a steady job to start a small business is often a very daunting prospect. The days of receiving a guaranteed salary and having fixed working hours will be behind you, often replaced by financial uncertainty and very long workdays. Despite this risk, the promise of greater rewards and increased job satisfaction drives hundreds of people every day to step outside their comfort zone and try to make their business idea a success.

If you are still trying to decide whether to leave your office job you should consider some of the following points. Firstly, you will probably gain far more experience about the world of business in your first year of trading than you have done so far in your entire career. Even if the business is not a great success, potential employers in the future will be impressed with your CV and you may be able to find a better job. You will also have the experience necessary to try running your own business again at some point in the future.

If you are unhappy with your current job or feel that your career has stagnated, the challenge of running your own business can be just what you need to get you out of a rut. In the current economic climate no-one’s job is secure, so if you are offered voluntary redundancy it can be a great impetus to change your life completely.

Another reason many people leave their job is to avoid the unpleasant expensive daily commute. Try to work out how much time and money you could save by running your own business closer to home. Using our OnlineOffice software suite will even allow you to run a business from the comfort of your kitchen table.
