What do you need in place...?
To escape my corporate life I set two financial targets before I was allowed to leave - I was confident that knowledge and experience would just sort themselves out, but I was willing to work for years get my ‘safety net’ in place.
For some, the level of knowledge or qualification is non-negotiable, for others experience and contacts are critical for success. And for a precious few, the need to just go, and go now, far outweighs any plan.
Every big change needs a leap of faith, and only we know how far we are willing (or able) to jump - just make sure it’s not fear setting that target, because then you’ll end up with a jump you’ll never feel ready to take…
