How to Quit A Job

I normally gear my blog to business owners. Today I want to talk with aspiring business owners who are still employed by someone else. There will be a point when you will quit your job to launch your company. However, don’t think this a moment to brag, boast or be rude to your employer. There are some rules to live by when quitting job. I’ve listed them below:

1. Make sure you have customers already lined up. If not, you haven’t properly researched your company and the right resources / elements are not in place.

2. Always give a two week notice, or more, when leaving your job. You don’t want to burn any bridges. Not only can your boss write a bad letter of reference should you need it in the future, he or she may be able to refer business to you.

3. Be humble. Don’t boast about your ability to quit your job to other employees. Instead, invite them to try your services / products for free as they can be your best advocates, especially starting out.

Until Monday,

Twyla N. Garrett
