I Feel Trapped in my Corporate Job and Want to Start a Business Online

Sharing is caring!

I totally understand this and you hear it all the time. I feel stuck at my job! I don’t like the work culture! If I could, I would love to finally quit my job and work from home!


Did you know that you can start a home-based business without quitting your job? (at least don’t quit your job, just yet).  People are just tired of the 9 to 5 grind, while others have personal issues, health reasons, feel unfulfilled in their current job, to name just a few reasons.


As a means of testing the waters and start a new business of their own, or supplementing income, many people want to move their skills and ideas to start a home-based business move into the digital world, while working a full-time job. They want a way to start working online while still keeping their job.


It’s quite simple and does not require a lot of start up cash. Most people start by taking inventory of their skillset and getting a good grip of what they will offer as their service.


If you have been thinking about this all along take this to heart, do your research. The best way to accomplish a goal of working from home to start a new business is to have a simple business plan and clarity.


This is where I can step in, and I can help you with your business vision. I always dreamed of having my own business since I was in my early 20s.  As a matter of fact, I worked in corporate for many decades, and I’ve been there and experienced the headaches of debating if I am good enough to start a business. I didn’t know what type of business to have, who to talk to and ask questions, it was keeping me up awake at night for months!


I had no idea where to start and while goggling “how-to’s”, in the meantime I was  looking for work in a very small town where the opportunities were rare.  Eventually, after weeks of meditating and visioning of working from home, I was gifted the answer to my prayers. The Law of Attraction does work!


I started my business in 2014 as an online service provider,  I built my website and created my social media profiles. I attended networking events, local workshops in my community and offered general administrative support as a virtual assistant and earned income from clients locally. Since I also was blogging and sharing my articles everywhere online, people started finding me, and my client base expanded globally!


I’m able to help people worldwide, how awesome is that?! And I help others without sacrificing my soul and life’s purpose. Since I was now earning income, I spent some of my profits and invested in my professional development and received certifications in digital marketing, business mentorship and as a Coach.


If you are seriously thinking of starting a business from home and you have skills that can help others, here are a few tips:


  • Research online the type of business you want to do
  • Brainstorm a quick plan of your offering (provide services or sell products or both)
  • Will you need a business license in your area
  • Create a budget to get online (hosting, domain url, etc.)
  • Start a rough draft of the content for each page of your website
  • Your technology systems and processes


When you’re doing  your research, don’t compare yourself to other super successful entrepreneurs online and don’t let them discourage you. Remember, we all start from the basics, and they didn’t become “online entrepreneur stars” overnight.


My heart goes out to anyone who is stressed in their current employment and feel stuck right now.  Try to make the best of it and when you’re not at work, doing your research to begin a business online, has to make you feel better.  You can have a part-time home-based business while working, use your  unique skills & experience and you will gain the confidence to do this.  


All you need to start is the clarity, a strategy, and the necessary steps to bring your skills into the online world. As someone who’s been there, I can save you time by holding your hand and guiding you every step of the way. I make technology not scary at all! You can do this!  Let me know how I can help or answer any questions,  book a free 30-minute strategy session, here is my calendar to book online: Here’s my calendar.
