How To Transition From A ‘9 to 5’ Job Into An Entrepreneur



By Glory Edozien

It strange but 5 years ago, I never saw myself as an entrepreneur. In fact I still don’t see myself as one. It’s really about having the opportunity to create my future and entrepreneurship seems to be the only way to express my vision and create the future I want.

But as a 9-5 girl with more experience in urban development than business transactions this is not a transition that is easy for me to make. In many ways I feel completely unequipped to become an entrepreneur, so I have spent a considerable amount of time learning new skills to help me on this new journey. On today’s edition of discovery, I share some of the tips I have learnt.

Have you transitioned from a 9-5 to an entrepreneur or thinking of making the transition? Have you used any of these tips or have some to add? Please feel free to leave a comment
