Think before your Quit.!

Perhaps you started a business or made some good investments. The money is starting to pour in. Now it’s time to quit your job right?

If this is you, follow this rule:
Go One Year without cashing a paycheck from your job.


After having a year under your belt you’ll know if you can survive the ups and downs of your new venture. I’ve never seen one that produces the exact same amount of money every month like a job. They all fluctuate.

In that one-year’s time you’re not spending your paychecks. Put them in the bank. Then you’ll have money to fall back on if you need it.
Too many people I know leave their day jobs too early only to regret it a few months later. Don’t put yourself in this situation.
