Planning for financial success as your own boss?

Don't know how to get started?

One of the most common questions we encounter is people who want to quit their day jobs, but don't know how. These are the questions that cross every employee's mind when being part of a workplace. Many people believe that leaving their 9-5 job will affect their financial security and therefore don't consider the transition to a venture of their own. The most difficult part of the journey is simply beginning the transition to becoming self-employed. Once you begin, you are already half way there!

The most important question is WHY? The bigger the why the easier the HOW! Why do you want to quit your job and become a full time entrepreneur? Having TIME is one of the leading reasons why people want to transition to being self-employed. Time is your greatest asset, not being able to be duplicated or manipulated gives this component the most value in everybody's life. No amount of money can replace the time you cherish with your family and are able to participate in life's most beautiful moments when your baby takes their first step to them graduating from college. Being self-employed gives you the opportunity to control your own time and be your own boss. Who wouldn't want to be in charge of their own time?

Get your finances on the right track with the top 10 TIPS in transitioning to SELF-EMPLOYMENT!

1.) Change your mindset

2.) Being part of a business organization

3.) Find a mentor

4.) Be resourceful

5.) Use your free-time wisely

6.) Formulate a business plan

7.) Build up personal/family funds

8.) Live within your means

9.) Start early (learn faster = earn faster)

10.) Daily positive affirmations


Thank you for joining me on Episode #3 of Money & Life. This week I had the pleasure of speaking with local entrepreneur, Christopher Wycoco of Wycotax free e$timax and it was nothing short than amazing!

He shares a passion for entrepreneurship and has seen growth in his business exponentially in the past few years. I met Christopher a few years back when I started my business and admired his business tenacity. There comes a time in life when some of us start questioning if we should continue to work to build someone else's dream or work to build our own. Well Chris gets this question quite often. So who better to interview than the winner of the 2018 SBA Minority Small Business of The Year Award for tips on how to become self-employed.

Thank you for the interview Christopher Wycoco and for the marketing tips Bryan L. Martinez!
