This week I had the pleasure of spending some time on the mic with my friend Ken Brokaw. Ken is an author, entrepreneur, and the founder of Leveling Up Your Life.
Creating a profitable side hustle before quitting your job:
Use that fear as motivation. If you're in a current job...I would keep that job and make sure you build up the side hustle accordingly. Build the systems and processes in place to be able to replace that side job. Don't cut off your main stream of income. Know that you hate the job. And once you know you hate the job, then you have more motivation to build that side hustle to replace that income.
Budgeting to quit your job:
Map out all of your, what I call, "bare essentials." How much is your rent or mortgage? How much do you pay in utilities? Know exactly what you spend per week, even down to the bottle of wine. So, if you're gonna spend $40 a week on wine, know that. Write it down. Accept that that's what you spend on wine. And, know that once you add up all of those, that's what you need in order to quit your job and go all in.
Using his job to get a better job:
[My boss] was in a position where I wanted to be in the future. So, I notated everything he did. What was his morning routine? What did he do during the day? How did he treat his family? How did he get to where he is today? I would notate everything And, so when we would bring food to his meetings, I would notate who was in the meetings, what businesses, and so forth.
