    Find your why, and make your exit.

    Are you happy with your current work situation? If you’re reading this Blink, the answer is probably no. 

    Don’t worry – that’s nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, recognizing your own frustration is the first step on your journey to freedom. There might even come a tipping point that pushes you into your new life. For the author, it came when her best friend called her out for working on her wedding day. She decided then that she didn’t want to hustle on someone else’s behalf anymore.

    That was her reason for becoming her own boss. What’s yours? 

    Once you’ve found your “why,” it will be easy to decide you’re really going to do this. Now you just have to get started.

    The best way to give yourself the push you need is to schedule an exit date for your current job. The author wrote hers on a sticky note and put it up on her bathroom mirror. When picking a date, ask yourself, Which day would the bravest version of myself choose? 

    This doesn’t mean leaving without a plan. Set your date so you have time to build a runway for your exit. Your runway will consist of three simple steps:

    First, define your starter idea – what business do you want to start? 

    Second, create a financial plan. You don’t need to draw up a whole business plan – but you do need to know how much money to make to survive. 

    Third, create one piece of content to put online. You don’t need a website for this – just start with social media. 

    We’re going to dive into each of these steps in the next sections. And once you’ve completed them, it’s time to hand in your notice. Research the best way to quit your job – you want to stride into your new life as gracefully as possible.

    As you do so, rest assured that it’s completely normal to have tons of questions. You don’t need to have all the answers from the get-go. Your “why” just needs to be a little stronger than your doubts.

    And if you’re worried that you’re going to fail – well, that’s part of the learning process. The author’s first digital course launch was a massive flop. Now, her business makes eight figures a year. 

    So what are you waiting for? Find your why, plan your exit, and then get out of there! The world is ready for you.
