Let's face it, I know you might be afraid to quit your 9-5 job. You're worried about whether you can make at LEAST as much money as you're currently earning in your 9-5, right?
I get it.
I told myself that story for a year before I finally quit my job.
BUT, when I quit, and I replaced my income quicker than I anticipated, I knew so much more was possible. And yes, I asked myself a million times, "Why didn't I quit SOONER?!?
I want YOU to quit sooner!! :)
Tip #1 - Start on the side.
I'm not here to tell you to quit your job cold-turkey and then figure it all out.
I believe in starting smart and acting strategically.
Even if you feel like you don't have time or the clarity on what you want your side business to be, you CAN start somewhere. Clarity comes from taking action, not from waiting to get clear. It's time to get serious about starting or growing your business on the side of your 9-5.

Did you love what tasks you were working on?
Did you hate it?
What are you willing to do to get that freedom?
I’m giving you 3 quick tips to replace your income so that you can quit your 9-5 SOONER rather than LATER!
Tip #2 - Only focus on income generating tasks.
Things to take into consideration:
Do you know exactly what type of tasks move you forward in your business?
Are you working on THOSE exact money-making tasks every day (even if you have just a few minutes)?
Do you know how to attract your ideal client right now?
If you've had paying clients before, how did you get them in the past?
Or are you feeling confused and overwhelmed by trying to do everything and find yourself sitting down at the computer and feeling so scattered that you wind up scrolling through Facebook instead?
There's a lot of busy work that feels "necessary" but is not directly money-making. Keep yourself focused on your actual money-making tasks or you'll waste a lot of your precious time "working on your business" but not actually moving forward in your number one goal of replacing your income. Let go of FOMO and focus on those money-making tasks.
And, if you don't yet know what those tasks are, make it a priority to figure them out so that you can use your limited time wisely and efficiently.
Tip #3 - Create and sell high end services.
What is it you’re offering to your idea client?
What value does it provide them?
Figure out your value and price accordingly, not based on what everyone else around you is doing or what you think your ideal client will pay for.
Create a premium-priced, value-packed offer based on what you're good at, how you like to work and where you shine (your Zone of Genius, as Gay Hendricks, PhD. calls it in his book, The Big Leap).
Hustling to sell a lot of low-priced, one-off services is going to take a lot more time and energy than a couple of premium-priced goods or services. It comes down to a numbers game, so do not sell yourself short.
Which ones are you clear on and which ones cause you overwhelm?
