Job Optional with Jenae Duarte

Feast and Famine of Entrepreneurship

Being a young and idealistic Entrepreneur can make you shoot for the moon, without even a dirty mattress to catch you.
At least that’s my story of early failure or as tried and true Entrepreneurs say… lessons.

There are no failures only lessons on what not to do the next time!

A false sense of security shook me in my 1st attempt at launching a Business. I can remember balling out my first couple weeks out and then… crickets.

When I say zero clients, and zero prospects for any type of income. Panic set in, my pride would not let me schlep back to my former job on bended knee. Or divulge to my family my dire circumstance so I decided then and there I’d never be so vulnerable ever again.



Why the Transition to Job Optional matters

Using your Side Hustle as a Launching Pad to financially support you in the early transition to Entrepreneurship becoming Job Optional will allow you to have peace of mind. You won’t have the added stress of worrying if bills will be paid.

This also prevents taking on clients you might not want to work with because you need the money. Turning your passion into a nightmare. Feel me…

I know this route is not for everybody, some folks can burn the boats and run with with it. I have found that is just not practical for me. I just don’t function well under that kind of stress and that’s okay. as I always say everything is not for everybody. We work at our pace and stay in our lane.

Don’t get distracted by the HOV lane it’s slow and steady here on the right but we all will get to our destination just at different times.



Key Takeaways from the Podcast

  • Never begrudge small beginnings
