Do more of what makes you happy! I know this sounds a little cheesy but bear with me for a second. I’ve recently become aware of the affect this principle has on my life. This year has been a huge year of change for me. Not only am I in a happy relationship but after more than ten years of working in the corporate world, I made the choice to quit my job to build my coaching business. I no longer feel like I’m ‘working’. I’m working long hours 10:00 am to 8:00 pm most days, and a few hours over the weekend. I no longer wake up every Monday morning groaning with disbelief. I don’t get to Wednesday afternoon and cry when I realise there are two whole days before the weekend starts. For the first time in my life, I feel fulfilled within myself and with my career. It’s a wonderful but strange feeling. It’s all because I’m doing what I love.

This is the reason why I have decided to create a brand new blog series, ‘How to Start an Online Business.’ There are so many women out there that dream of leaving their corporate jobs behind, just like I did, but they don’t know where to start.  In this series, I will take you through the exact steps to go from the dream of quitting your 9 to 5 through to quitting your job with a profitable online business. If this is something that you’ve been dreaming about then I recommend, if you haven’t already to go back and read my blog post, ‘Want to Quit Your Job?’ This post walks you through the first five questions you should ask yourself before you make the decision to leave your job especially if you are unhappy and have been that way for a long time. It’s important to consider, why you are feeling unfulfilled and if a business is really what you want. I also have an accompanying Zero to Business Questionnaire workbook to complement this stage of your journey. This questionnaire contains 24 questions designed to help you get clear about what you want and walks you through steps to start creating a profitable online business. At the end of the Zero to Business Questionnaire is a quit plan based on your answers to the 24 questions, which will help take the guess work out of working towards quitting your job with a profitable online business. Join my VIP list to get access to the Zero to Business Questionnaire and Quit Plan.

The first post of this series will be released on next Tuesday. In this post, I will walk you through the exact steps you need to take in order to develop a profitable business idea.

Action: Read my previous post, ‘Want to Quit Your Job?’ and start working through the Zero to Business Questionnaire.
