Costly Mistakes To Avoid When You Quit Your Job

Collaborative Post

Quitting your job is, for many, a moment of freedom. Finally, you can leave the pettiness or limitation of the office behind to do your own thing. At least, that’s the spirit. But when you quit your job, you also say ‘no’ to the safety of regular income. And that could be problematic if you haven’t planned your next step carefully.

Costly Mistakes To Avoid When You Quit Your Job

Indeed, without a regular paycheck, you might find it difficult to handle what life throws at you, especially when it comes to financial matters. So, it’s crucial that you avoid the following financial miscalculations when you hand over your resignation letter.

Why Do People Want To Quit Income Safety?

A lot of people struggle with a job they hate, but many rely on a coping strategy to deal with it. From practising stress management to trying to improve your chances by incorporating new responsibilities, there are a few ideas you could use to make it better. However, it’s fair to say that if these don’t work, you’ll get up every day feeling bitter about every task you have to do.

At the end of it, if you want to balance the bitterness by finding something positive about your job, you risk handing over a heated resignation letter. When you quit, try to be calm about it so that you don’t make your previous co-workers enemies. After all, you might need a reference!

Quit Without Financial Preparation

While it is understandable to want to leave a work environment that is stressful and unpleasant, you need to be strategic about it. Quitting without a plan B means that you might have to spend a prolonged period without a job. As a result, you’ll be struggling with invoices, paying your mortgage or even your credit card bills. You might also have to look for support from to sort out the situation, even after you manage to find a job.

The first thing you need to consider when quitting is your financial situation.

Don’t Have A Business Strategy

So, you’re an enthusiastic crafter, and you hope to transform your hobby into a business? It’s a great idea. However, you need to be careful. Craft businesses – or indeed any home-based business – do need a lot of time to reach their momentum. You have to consider the strategy behind the necessary funding, skill training and even marketing activities. It’s best to start being your independent business while you still have a job. This means that when you quit, you already have a running business to go to.

Hope You Can Make A Big Win

Things would be easier if you won the lotto. All it takes is one big win. Just one more time. If you too dream of coming across a vast sum of money that you could use to sort out your life, you need to be careful about what you wish. Indeed, most lotto winners are unprepared for financial management and end up losing their gains rapidly. Additionally, it’s not uncommon for people to encourage debts as they try to win money, from gambling to the national lottery. Build a financial strategy that doesn’t require luck to work.
