Factual VS Emotional Decision Making

Factual VS Emotional Decision Making

Factual vs Emotional decision making? At some point in one’s life, you have to decide if you want to work for someone or if you want to start your own business. For some, that decision comes much later in life after working for a big corporation for many years. For others, that decision is made up front. In my case the decision was made upfront. 

Here are a few tips on helping your decision be more factual than emotional

  1. Starting your own business requires quite a bit of capital and therefore you will have to be able to fund the business and look after yourself and your family for at least 6 months.
  2. I always feel that I should have started in corporate and learned the tricks of the trade while I am earning a salary. If you can, let someone else pay you while you are learning and making mistakes.
  3. Be prepared that you will work harder in your own business because there is more at stake. Working harder for less money is also a reality in the beginning.
  4. Don’t quit your day job until you are 100% sure what you want to do and if that idea you have is worth the sacrifice you are about to make.
  5. Never let the fear of failure affect your decision. If you are confident and prepared to work extremely hard then be bold and take the step!
