Here are five steps you can take to grow a business based on the skills you gained in your day job.
Many tend to believe that our regular jobs and careers are at diametrical opposites from our existing or potential businesses. Many, if not most, will draw a strict line between their 9-to-5 and their side hustles or businesses, as if the former has nothing to do with the latter.
Don’t get me wrong, there are instances when you must keep your day job and business, if you happen to have both, separate. Some companies are not keen on having their employees grow side hustles that may be in conflict with their main job responsibilities. Others just fear that their employees will not be as committed to their day jobs if they have a business on the side.
However, your job is not as diametrically opposed to your potential business as you may think. Your current job may actually help you start and grow your next business. That was the case for me, as the mission for The Corporate Sister was born out of my experience as a career woman and the needs for mentorship, guidance and resources that I experienced as a working woman.
If you’re wondering how you can use your job to start and grow your next business, here are five steps you can take.
