When should you quit your job and go full time in network marketing

A lot of people see the income potential in network marketing and unfortunately, they end up quitting their job too soon, so today’s post I give some tips on when you should quit your job and go full time in network marketing.

When should you quit your job and go full time in network marketing

Having a job while building your business isn’t the end of the world

Most people who are just joining network marketing have never had a business before and lack many of the skills to be successful right away.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t be successful, it just means that you are going to have to go through a learning curve in most cases before you reach the income goals you are looking for.

As the great Jim Rohn said, “Work your job to pay your bills and build your business to build your future.” There isn’t anything wrong with working a job along side of building your home business.

Unfortunately, a lot of newbie network marketers demonize having a job and attack people for it and come across anti-job or you must be an idiot if you have a job etc. It’s great being an entrepreneur, but it’s not the best strategy to attack people for having a job, when in most cases that’s almost everyone you will be attempting to recruit in the first place.

Desperation isn’t a good spot to come from for recruiting

Having an all-in mindset or burning the bridge mindset is great and you should definitely have that, but you can still do that even if you are building part time. You can put in all out effort into the hours you do put into your business.

Many people think this means that they need to be putting in full time hours to accomplish results. That just isn’t the case. It’s not about how much time you have it’s how effective you are with your time.

Quitting your job too soon when you aren’t making money in your business can be stressful and can cause you to go into desperation mode. When it comes to recruiting you want to have a sorting mindset not selling.

You shouldn’t be convincing people to join your business and desperate to have them on board as it has the opposite effect that you want. People aren’t attracted to needy and desperate people.

When you are struggling to make ends meet because you tried to go full time too soon, you can make the mistake of looking at people like a dollar sign when you are out prospecting and recruiting.

Having posture and not needing people will attract the right people into your business. Being needy and desperate won’t.

Stress causes some people to break and others to breakthrough

Obviously I want you to have breakthroughs in your business and take things to the next level. Sometimes being backed into a corner helps people to breakthrough, but in a lot of cases it causes inaction and fear to set in.

I get how it can suck working a job you don’t enjoy while you are building your business, I’ve been there before, but just look at it as a means to an end. You want to have income coming in so you can invest in your business and yourself to get to higher levels faster.

A lot of people struggle in their businesses because they haven’t gone through their learning curve yet and haven’t developed their leadership to reach the success levels they want.

If you don’t have any money coming in and you are not making money in your business either, it’s going to be hard to have the money to go to training events, and take courses necessary to learn the skills and afford the tools to build and scale your business.

So working a job alongside of your business isn’t wrong, nor should you feel ashamed of it, as it can be an effective way to keep investing in your business and yourself to achieve your long term goals of making a full time income in your business.

Building a business isn’t an overnight thing, nor is it always going to be plentiful

Building a business has it’s ups and downs, and life can get in the way. If you don’t prepare for that in advance it can put you through a lot of unnecessary stress while you are building your business.

How much money would you need to survive for 6 months to a year without working? Do you have that safety net built up in savings yet?

Another thing people make the mistake of is that they don’t have a safety net in place in case something goes wrong and their business doesn’t always go up. Can some people join their business and get to work and never have to work a job again right away?  Sure that’s possible, but it certainly isn’t the norm.

Businesses take time to build and having a few months worth of your expenses saved up in advance is a much less stressful way to transition into building your business full time.

There still are certainly lots of people who have built their businesses up to a full time income along side of their job and now have doubled their income. They now have to opportunity to work their job because they want to, not because they have to.

“Going full time” isn’t the only option for building a successful and profitable business. You can certainly still make a lot of money working your business part time, it just isn’t going to happen overnight. If you are going to go full time and quit your job, be sure to have a few months in savings in place so you don’t get yourself in trouble if you have an off month here or there.
