7. Suck it and see.
You think working for yourself might be a good idea as you’ve been working for the same company for a couple of years but realise you could be made redundant at any time. You would like to have more flexibility around the other parts of your life. You don’t feel a sense of ownership about your work. Also, and it was found to be one of the most popular reasons why people choose to become a solopreneur, you don’t feel a sense of ownership about the work .
The lack of self determination leads you to become less engaged with what you do. In fact you would like to do what you like doing. “Well wouldn’t we all” you might say but it’s easy today to try it out and see where it takes you.
You could start by adding yourself to relevant social and freelance sites, make yourself known and do a bit on the side. It’s never been easier to make steps towards working for yourself.
