Lightbulb 4 Essential Steps To Take Before Quitting Your Job To Start A Business

Hi folks!

Just wanted to share this post that our founder and I worked on recently.

We had this conversation about the financial considerations he took before leaving his job to start our company, and I thought it would be great to share his tips in form of a post for anyone looking to branch out on their own. The thought of leaving a steady income job and diving into something you're not 100% sure will succeed is daunting, but I think he makes some solid points that will at least leave you a good enough cushion to take the leap!

Here's the post: https://lighthouse.amidship.com/4-es...s-b532d0db53ce

Would love to hear your thoughts on any other considerations you took before you quit to start your own biz!
