Making the leap from corporate to self employed

by | | Grow the Money, Podcast | 0 comments

In this episode of ‘It’s Not About the Money’ (formerly ‘In Her Financial Shoes’), I share my journey of transitioning from a secure full-time job to running three successful businesses.

I provide insights and tips on how to make the leap from corporate to self-employed, I emphasizes the importance of exposing oneself to successful self-employed individuals and surrounding oneself with supportive communities.

I also highlight the need for financial stability and multiple income streams during the transition. I encourage reframing the current job, setting clear outcomes and timeframes, and staying connected to one’s purpose and vision.
