Question: I want to quit my job to start my own business, when do you know it’s the right time?

Melissa:
Sooner than later! Stop dreaming and do… If you can achieve this first and basic step then you are well suited to take on the trials and tribulations that come with owning your own business. Apart from getting yourself in the right head space you need to get your target market on board.

Market research and sampling the service/product will also let you know if the time is right or not.

Robyn:
I think that it is the best idea to start your business and get it going while you still have a job. You should obviously work on it after hours and get your social media scheduled via Hootsuite or a program like that. This is the best way to be sure that you can make money.

If you cant make money from it, its a hobby and not a valid business idea, this is something that you have to remember. Adapt your idea to make you the most money and start to earn money from it before quiting your day job.
