When you start a business there is a tendency to subconsciously rebel against anything that feels remotely like the rigidity of your corporate role…strategy, planning, goals, targets, etc.
Instead, people tend to jump straight in, focusing on the fun bits of starting a business and filling their time with all the ‘work’ they think they need to do, but without any real understanding of where they’re headed.
They may have a vague idea of what they want to achieve, but nothing concrete that they can actually work towards.
As a new business owner you know you want to grow your business to the point where you can leave your job, because to try and juggle the two indefinitely just isn’t viable, but you don’t have an exact date in mind (and no…as soon as possible isn’t a target date).
You don’t really know just how much you need to be consistently earning before that can happen, what your business needs to look like to get to that point, or what the quickest route to getting there is.
What you need…is an exit strategy.
You can have all the best intentions in the world, but without a solid plan you are likely to end up drifting along aimlessly never getting any closer to achieving your goal, constantly pushing back your estimated departure date because you’re struggling to earn the sort of money you think you’ll need consistently, or you’re lacking the confidence and conviction in your abilities to commit to making that leap.
