DO NOT start slacking off. When you start entertaining your passion and your creativity, your job will become even more of a drag. However, since you are clocking in everyday and collecting a paycheck you owe them quality work. No researching your target market or daydreaming about the future opportunities. Do your work.
DO NOT try to take others with you! This is not the time to start quoting statistics about the success of entrepreneurs or the virtues of entrepreneurship! Don’t defame your boss or managers and keep all negativity about the company and its policies to yourself. Often times we do this, consciously, to influence others or unconsciously to get approval. Pay attention to your motives, stay focused on your plans and leave others alone.
DO NOT leave without a two-week resignation. Okay if you have a new 6 figure client who
give 2 wks notice and write a REAL resignation letter.
has already started paying you and your 9 to 5 is hindering you from satisfying the client then rethink the 2week resignation. Most of us don’t leave a job with something like that in the bucket. So write up your resignation letter and give it to your boss as well as the Human Resource department. Be a professional.
