This question gets asked a lot because people with a part-time or a full-time job may be getting into coaching or speaking or something else and they want to transition from their old job into their new business. It is different for everybody.
Transition From Full-Time to Part-Time
First thing, you transition from full-time work to part-time work and then out, and if possible reducing your hours, and reducing your hours until you can move full-time out of that position, and full-time into your new business. If that’s not possible, then it’s building up the business outside of your full-time job and spending those extra hours until it gets full on the outside of your full-time job, and then you can let that full-time job go.
Truly Believe That You Will Be a Success
The second thing is the question, “Do you believe that you can be successful in your business? Because some people sit on the fence and go, “This is my Plan B.” “I’m really comfortable!” “I’ve got this income coming in.” And they don’t want to take that plunge as the saying goes, or they don’t have the courage to step into their new business.
Know in your heart that when you’re ready to take that plunge, you will be successful. If you truly believe that your business will be a success, it will be a success.
Listen to Your Intuition
The third thing is you will know. You will know deep down inside your core it’s time to leave that job. Sure it’s going to feel uncomfortable and that’s okay because you are taking what we call a calculated risk. You’ve got everything in place; you’ve got all your ducks in the line, and you are making that decision in an informed way but you’ll know because you’ll go to your job and you won’t enjoy it. It won’t feel comfortable; things will feel hard and you’ll know that it gets worse and worse and it escalates until you go bang, “I know I have to leave.”
Listen to that gut feel and make that decision around the time when you absolutely know it’s the right time. You’ll know in your core when it’s the right time to make that decision, but the best thing about this is getting someone around you who can support you and coach you through this. A great coach helps in so many ways.

I’ve helped people transition from industry to industry; from job to business, having that coach with you holding your hand along the way gives you a lot of courage to make those really important decisions along the way. I suggest you go get a coach who will help you transition through all of these areas. I’ve transitioned through many industries; many careers and I’ve had a coach helping me all the way through that.
