Being your own boss is a dream but it will never be as simple as just resigning from your current job and jumping into entrepreneurial success. It will take time and some necessary processes highlighted below.

Don’t quit that 9-to-5 job just yet!

If you are skeptical about the world of self-employment, then don’t just jump into it. You can start by turning your passion to a side gig (passive income generating business) and nurture the side gig into something bigger.

And most importantly, set aside a little of your day job income (about 5%) to get the side business off the ground.

Check your numbers

Check your personal account numbers by separating your personal money from that of your side gig savings.

You should consider opening a separate bank account for the side business. That will help towards investment, supplies and probably taxes.

You may also want to consult an accountant if you are not too good at managing your own personal finances, or you’re unsure of how much is needed to get the side business off the ground.

Choose your side business carefully

Earning a passive income is the best part of starting a side business. But the hardest part is deciding which business to choose.

It’s easier to put some money into retirement savings or pay taxes from your regular 9 to 5 job. But this is not always straightforward with a side business.

For this reason, you need to create an initial business plan where you need to calculate how much profit you expect to make on regular basis and how much of this you want to pay as taxes, insurance bills, retirement savings and your month-to-month expenditures such as rent, gas, and groceries.

From the money left over, you can then decide how much you want to re-invest in the business and the remaining will be your income.

Separate your wants from needs

In order to be financially savvy, you need to prioritize your needs above your wants.

other valuable readings:

For example:

  • If your new side business will require a computer and fast speed internet access..
  • And then you think you need a new home office that requires painting and some other makeovers…
  • Then you should consider prioritizing the computer and fast-speed internet access before the office makeover!

Conclusion

It pays to have a side business that you can nurture into a full-time income-generating business. You may never know when you will get fired from that regular day job, hence you must be prepared for uncertainties.
