When Is It Time To Quit My Corporate Job and Purchase My Own Business?

每年, business journals and financial magazines come out with statistics informing an overworked American public how many of them collectively hate their corporate jobs. 而我们大多数人只是想要一份体面的薪水, 良好的健康好处, 以及在合理年龄退休的机会, some people cannot tolerate their own loathing for the everyday 9 to 5 effort of working for someone else, 他们开始自己经营自己的生意. 在冒这个险之前, eager potential business owners should ask themselves the following intelligently thought out questions:

Do I hate the job I am in and do I feel that there are no other options for me within the corporate world?

Is my corporate job ruining my relationship with family, friends, or even myself?

在公司里,我的薪水是否达到了极限, and will I only be awarded “cost of living” raises from here on out?

The EEOC frequently informs frustrated American workers that if they are told that “no one is getting a bonus or a raise this year” it is not illegal, 即使工人们已经付出了他们的一切. 现在的经济很糟糕, and sometimes you have done all you can with your corporate job, and the only other way to increase your income is to work for yourself by purchasing your own well-tuned business.

Is the business I am interested in purchasing already infused with a great marketing and business plan, and has the business already been proven undoubtedly successful with the right amount of effort and dedication?

It is so important that a desperate cubicle warmer not suddenly throw themselves into purchasing a business that does not have any proven potential. An Internet café’ that has been struggling to stay open and has no employees beyond the overworked owner is not the picture of a proven success. 而, a long time run family pizza shop that is well known and well loved by the community may be the perfect opportunity for someone who studied culinary arts in college but gave up their passion years ago to work as a bank teller when student loans demanded immediate employment.

Is the investment I am making the singular investment I can afford in life because I will be placing every asset I have into it?

如果生意失败,我将失去我的房子或一生的积蓄? 如果有一个问题的答案是肯定的, most business and financial experts would say that this is most certainly not the business you can afford to purchase right now and it isn’t the right time.

我会有一位导师吗, someone who has been helping to run this business or who has guided the previous owner into success?

Not every new business that is purchased by an eager entrepreneur has this indelible option, but it is one that could prove infinitely important when times become stressful or when the new owner is simply trying to navigate the exact details of keeping a pizza shop clean or at what times vacationers generally come into the local realty office to inquire about timeshares on the beach. When mentorship comes with the package – you have access to the same great advice givers who inspired the previous owners to reach out and create something successful enough to make you want to buy it.

Will this new business have me working more than I do at my present corporate job?

If the answer is “yes” then this is an indication that you may not be able to sustain your new business. 经常, 简单的解决办法是同时做两份工作, 新业务是兼职的, 直到新公司能够满足你的财务需求.

Do I have the stamina to sustain the unpredictability that often goes along with owning my own business?

Even a successful business that has been run by someone else for years, can overwhelm a new entrepreneur and burn out can kill a formerly well-run operation.

我是否具有企业家或企业的思维模式?

Some people are not meant to spend their lives working for someone else, 还有一些人天生就擅长这个. 了解你是哪种商业头脑是很重要的.

Are you thinking of quitting your corporate job and buying your own business? Ask yourself a few well thought out questions first and listen to the answers you are giving.
