If you’re tired of the mundane work routine, and you’re seeking for some thrill and adventure, then this is for you. You’re ready to take that leap of faith and let that dream job take off for you—working for yourself.
You’re done listening to everyone telling you why you shouldn’t do it and how you’ll fail, and you’re completely convinced that this is exactly what you need to do right now.
Congratulations! You’ve officially joined the defiant group of risk-takers and dream chasers of this millennia.
What should you expect when you decide to dive into the deep end of your career? What is it like on the other side of the fence? What should you be prepared for when shifting gears?
Here are five honest, practical pointers on what you can look forward to after taking that leap.

Building a business from scratch requires meticulous planning, which includes getting the actual work done to working behind the scenes to ensure operations, marketing, and finances are running smoothly.
Just think about it—you’ll be doing the work of five people all rolled into one.
