Knowing When to Quit Your Day Job and Start a Company

Knowing when it is time for a person to quit his or her day job and start a business can be tricky. Many aspects of owning one’s own business can seem alluring. However, the individual has to be certain that he or she can survive for some time without an absolute weekly income. Anyone can achieve this goal and be successful, but he or she must be sure to take a careful analysis of several situations before acting. The following are questions one must ask to come to a feasible decision:

Will I Receive the Same pay and Benefits?

Some people will spend years at an un-fulfilling job because they fear losing the pay and benefits. Health care benefits are very expensive when a person does not have a traditional job. However, several health care options are available for self-employed individuals. As far as having the ability to earn the same pay, one must consider the service or products that he or she is offering. The individual must conduct thorough research to gauge the market’s need for such a service or product. The most successful entrepreneurs are the ones who continue to sell throughout the year.

Do I Have the Motivation and Time?

Starting a business requires a great deal of motivation and time. A person cannot afford to lose momentum at any time within the first two years. Therefore, the business that he or she chooses should be one in which the person has tremendous passion. Not all businesses take off right away. The key to success is keeping hope alive.

Can I Support Myself for two Years?

Perhaps the most crucial question a person should ask himself or herself is whether survival is attainable for a period of two years. The individual will have to have some sort of savings fund or pension that he or she can use to get by while the business is growing. The person will also need money to purchase supplies and credit card processing equipment. Additionally, the individual will want to obtain a merchant account for all business transactions.

Once the person is 100 percent sure that he or she has the drive, time and finances to succeed, he or she can begin the business venture. The new business owner can maximize earning potential by signing up for a merchant account and performing credit card processing. Most customers these days opt to pay for services with a credit card.



It took me a while to decide who I wanted to settle with to handle all of my credit card transactions because every company wants to make it sound like they're offering you the best rates. was able compare and beat all of the other offers I received. They were also able to provide me the fairest price on my EMV-compliant terminal. My sales representative and the support team were there to assist every step of the way. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to a long term relationship with this company.

It is a pleasure dealing with these folks. Their pricing is fair, their statements are understandable and their employees are knowledgeable and friendly.

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.

Linda Garner from Regali Da Forno

I called indecisive about getting a device, but speaking to your Sales Consultant completely settled me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patiently walked me through the process. He always responded to my voicemails and answered all my questions. After I received my merchandise, he called following up to ensure that I had received it. Customer service I would say is 5 stars. Stellar! Thanks Credit Card Processing, I will definitely recommend you.
