On that day you must work full to raise your business. When choosing the time, you have to be realistic. Make sure that the day was the day the appropriate, convenient, and perhaps for you to do business.
Check your expenses
Calculate how much to raise the funds needed for the business and you need each month. If you no longer work, see if there are sufficient funds to cover these expenditures. If not, then you must calculate how much longer you should still be an employee.
Start paying card bills
Make a target to pay off all your credit card bills. Plan also funds for business.
Ready to work independently If your business is done at home, so be prepared to work alone, without co-workers. Therefore, build up your network to get support from many quarters before you leave work.
Create a business plan

Business clients so you can ask for more, but you should still put your regular job. You have to discipline at the time and tell your clients when you work in an office and when taking care of business. Surely you do not want your energy being spent on taking care of business every home from work because it can make your stamina at work tomorrow to be reduced.
Be careful to use social media
Be careful to promote your product or expertise in social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Because, the company could track your activities in cyberspace. If you do business with your company’s business done, obviously this could increasingly jeopardize your position in the office.
Do not be wasteful
With the additional income from the business does not mean you are so wasteful. Save your money larger or use for business development purposes, not for purposes of self satisfaction or for fun.
