Is Entrepreneurship for You? An Expert’s Advice on How to Know

Posted on: Dec 30, 2019

Do you ever get that feeling that maybe, just maybe you’re supposed to be doing something different or something more than you are now? 

That maybe you need to move to a new city, or write a book, or volunteer more or create art or start your own business? 

I work with women who are feeling that nudge to step into a transition or add more self-expression in their life.  For some of them, that looks like monetizing their talents and starting a business.

While I believe that everyone is creative and creativity is for everyone, not everyone is meant to be an entrepreneur. (And that’s OK!)

But some of you totally are.

As we enter into a new year (and a new decade) I want to give you the tools to decide whether entrepreneurship is for you and take tangible steps toward it if you feel like it might be.

That’s why, on episode 18 of She Made It, I’m interviewing Jen Shultz, founder of The Non-Nine-To-Five. She’s an expert in helping people leave their desk jobs and step into entrepreneurship. We’re talking about her unconventional journey to entrepreneurship, questions you can ask yourself to figure out if entrepreneurship is for you, and how to make the leap from your 9-5 into your own business. 

Listen in to hear: 

  • The moment Jen knew she was done with her 9-5 job (and how she walked out)
  • Clues that you’re not in the right career Jen’s best advice for someone in a 9-5 job who wants to step into entrepreneurship
  • How anxiety and depression clued Jen in to what she was supposed to do next
  • The million-dollar question that will help you figure out whether to start a business
