10 Things To Do Before Quitting Your Job To Start A Business

February 4, 2014  |  

During the Super Bowl, Gwen Dean quit her job as an engineer in front of millions of people during an advertisement for GoDaddy’s “What’s Your Dream?” campaign. The reaction on Twitter ranged from complete shock that she had the guts to quit in this manner to pure inspiration. As someone who quit a great job to pursue my dream of owning a PR firm, I fell into the latter category. January marked the third anniversary of me starting my company and I couldn’t help but reflect on the journey thus far. One of the questions that I get a lot these days from people who are looking to start a business is, “What should I do before I take the leap?”

Looking back at my own mistakes, if I could have done things differently, I would have definitely followed these tips (in no particular order).
