For those of you who are thinking about quitting your job and starting your entrepreneurial journey, Tiana advises you to first and foremost have a plan. She stated, “…Have a plan so you can survive so that if you never get a client in the first three months, your bills are still paid. The next thing is what can you learn today? Allow your job to begin paying for your entrepreneurial journey.” Tiana suggested things such as taking classes, courses, and workshops today, to start testing it out now while you’re still in corporate America. She also stated that you have to have a balance, “If you’re working 40 hours in corporate, go home and work 10 hours for yourself until you can flip it.” Throughout the show Tiana Patrice reminds us that fear will be there as you make your many transitions in life, but you have to think about what life would look like if you don’t ever make that jump.
