My side gig has been going very well and developing organically, but I’m reaching the point where every waking moment that I’m not at my “real” job, I’m devoting to my own business, and I’m definitely reaching the point of burnout.
My own company is bringing in income, but it’s not 100% yet at what I’m earning at my real job and I’m hesitant to quit the latter and rely completely on the former. But at the same time I know that there’s no perfect time to quit my day job – what factors should influence the decision tree for me to finally cut the ties with my full-time job?
A good friend of mine was in a situation similar to this. At the end of the day, they quit their day job to pursue the side hustle, and to this day it has been the best decision for them. When making a decision like this, it is always critical to have Plan B, C, and sometimes even D. It always comes back to maintaining cohesive and strong relationships with the people you live and work with, because you will never know what opportunities present themselves. The leap of faith is important, but having something to return to is at times just as important, if not more. Best of luck!
