The 13 Steps From Employee to Entrepreneur

Many people dream of leaving their job to start a business and become their own bss. But it’s not easy leaving the (relative) security of a regular income to follow your dream. Being your own boss can be an attractive pull to the (perceived) greener grass the other side of the P45.

To many employees who are fed-up with their job or their employer it may seem that there are only two steps to becoming your own boss: leave your job and start your own business.

While it is entirely possible to transition from employee to entrepreneur, it’s a bit more complicated than that. And, as anyone who runs a small or micro business will tell you, the grass isn’t always greener on the self-employed side.

So, how do you ensure that running your own business is the right thing for you; and what steps should you take to create a smooth transition from employee to entrepreneur?

Join Business Mentor and Trainer, Kathy Ennis, to explore the 13-steps you will need to take on your road to becoming your own boss.
