This is a very special episode, we celebrate our FIVE YEAR anniversary of quitting our jobs to work on our online business full time.
We asked our Flip Your Life Community a question:
Imagine, Shane and Jocelyn are travelling back in time and are talking to the Shane and Jocelyn from 2013. (Stay with us…) They’re standing in a room together and it’s right before they quit their jobs. What would YOU want to ask the five year into the future S&J if you could be in that room?
We answer those questions on today’s episode.
“How did you ignore the endless amounts of personal/household to do’s and actually get work done?”
“How do you just go for it and know that there’s not a steady paycheck coming anymore? It’s so much easier in some regards to keep this as a side hustle while getting guaranteed pay from a company…How did you know it was time to QUIT?”
“With everything being so new to you at the time…. How did you determine what goals to set along the way? Did you find that your goals were too conservative, too crazy, focused on the wrong things?”
“What would you do different when starting from square one to bring in $$$ quicker?”
“What mindset did you each need to have to make the transition in the beginning? What mindset did you need right after you quit? What did you do immediately to develop systems, processes, etc to keep money rolling in and increasing over time?”
“What is the way you WISH or fantasize about REALLY quitting your job? Like do you wish you could have told them how horrible they were for keeping you from your kids and that you are going to do everything in your power to make sure no one is a teacher again and say I quit and throw glitter at them as you walk out.”
“What has the transition from a Full Time J-O-B cost you, that you never anticipated? Examples: physical, social, emotional, family, relationships, perspective? How did you cope with those consequences, or how are you accepting that?”
“You know what I’d love to hear from 2013 S&J? Where they would hope to be in 5 years and how that compares with now. I think as I set goals it’s be helpful to hear others’ reflections of what they were and weren’t able to accomplish and what they couldn’t even imagine.”
“What did you say YES to in the beginning, that you would say NO to now?”
“What TECH would you have spent more time adopting in the beginning to grow faster? What TECH would you get rid of now that you shouldn’t have used in the first place?”
“What were the unexpected outcomes that 2013 S&J didn’t even think would happen? What was the biggest worry/fear in 2013 that had absolutely zero impact on anything?”
“How do you continue to make progress and smash through roadblocks in business? What tips do you have to stay CONSISTENT and keep growing step by step?”
“Did you worry about paying for insurance vs. your employer paying for it? What about retirement and all the tax stuff your job usually takes care of for you? Is it as scary as it sounds (asking for a friend ;))”
“How has investing in coaching helped YOU TWO get to where you are? Looking back, do you think it’s necessary for success?”
“What is the biggest challenge you overcame, before making money and gaining traction?”
