What would you do or say if I tell you that you can fire your boss? Surely, your face is lighting up. You feel suddenly giddy and excited over the prospect. In the back of your mind, you may be saying, “Finally, I can get rid of these corporate shackles and chains.” But you would be wise to hold your horses for a while. It’s not easy to do it. Before you take the plunge, discover what it takes to really fire your boss:

Master Plan

When you’re, say, twenty-plus years old, there’s not a lot of room for play. It’s time to take your life very seriously. That’s why you shouldn’t just leave your job because you want to. You need to have a plan. For instance, if you want to open an online business, then you should already have, at the very least, an idea of what you’re planning to offer as well as target market.

It’s a good idea to dip your feet into the waters- perhaps part time at first. If you want to put up a graphic design business, you can start looking for clients and even try some projects that don’t require a lot of your time as of the moment. When you’re ready to leave, you don’t have to really begin from the bottom.

Risks

There will always be risks in life. It’s just a matter of accepting them. If you can’t, then there’s very little chance that you’ll succeed after you leave your work. After all, putting up an online business is filled with so many of them.

Firmness

The last thing you want to happen is to look back and have a lot of regrets. If you’re going to fire your boss and say good-bye to your job, then as much as possible, you shouldn’t have any time or reason to turn your back and crawl all the way back to your workstation. And you can only do that if you have identified your “WHY” very clearly. What’s your fire-roaring reason to do so, it has to be something that makes you unshakable in your commitment and unstoppable.

Money

The truth is that you can start an online business without any capital. All it demands is a lot of your time. Nevertheless, if you want to gain an edge over new players out there, it’s best if you already have some money to invest. You don’t need to have a lot, perhaps just enough to buy yourself a web host and domain, marketing materials, and one person who can help you with the routine tasks.

Get clear on these three first, before you say adieu to your job.
