When you’re considering forming an LLC or other type of business, knowing when to take the plunge is on the mind of every new entrepreneur. The decision is rightfully tough, isn’t it? Many who are wishing to start a business are currently working jobs that they may not love but they do love the steady income, days off, benefits, and after years of working for the same company, the work is no longer difficult or challenging.
This leads us to our first point: You know when the time is right if the decision seems scary. If your races, that cold sweat develops, and you lay awake at night thinking about the possibility of making a change, it’s probably time to start your new business. Staying in a job that doesn’t challenge you may pay the bills but it doesn’t allow life to give you what you deserve.
Do you wake up in the morning feeling heavy, tired, and a little dreary? This could be a classic case of burnout. Your productivity goes down, work relationships suffer, and you end up painting an inaccurate picture of yourself because of it. This is a sign that it’s time to start your own business.
If all of the pieces are coming together and they’re showing you that it’s time to dive in, take some concrete steps to get you going.
First, register your business with your state. Register as an LLC to keep the process easy to complete. Next, design a website or other advertising means, and finally, begin to make contacts and let people know that very soon you will open your business.
Does this sound like you? You have had dreams of starting a certain business since you can remember. You’ve planned it out, done exhaustive market research, and know exactly what you need to do to register your business as an LLC or corporation. The only thing holding you back is knowing the right time. If that’s you, now is the right time!
Now, are you getting excited? Does it ignite the passion in you to know that you’re one step closer to living out what you believe is your real purpose? If that’s what you feel as you think about being an entrepreneur, then it’s definitely time to get everything in place. Remember that with most small businesses you can still remain at your day job while your new business gets off the ground.
