I just quit my job in November I was in after 2 years of full time employment getting paid a measly $60k per year the lowest salary in my company.
I got myself a registered business number and some stars aligned that gave me the ability leverage my knowledge of my previous company to get a job offer from them.
With my new self employed registered business number I signed my previous employer.
They essentially have become my first client under my business number as a self employed contractor in marketing. I’m a registered business owner if my mom could see me now lol.
So. I negotiated a contact with my previous company that was paying me peanuts.
I actually got them to sign me on at a rate of $640 per day, 4 days per week for 6 months then with an ongoing agreement at the same daily rate after the 6 months is over.
And $640 a day guaranteed just to do the same job I was doing before and getting paid $60k!
It means I will earn about $9k per month instead of $3k for doing the same exact thing but working 4 days a week instead of 5.
I never saw this coming but deciding enough is enough and registering a business name/number and becoming my own boss was the best thing that ever happened to me.
I get to negotiate my terms and work, when and where I want to work. Now i can spend more time with the extra day off focussing on my side hustles to hopefully one day be fully working at home doing the things I want to do.
This is just a step towards that.
I’m not flexing but I just wanted to share this. True story but a year before I stated this job I was actually living out of a car doing it bloody rough in winter with $200 to my name so it’s been a blessing.
I’m up it’s 2am and I’m wired because I have to think of a way to spin my resignation in 7 hours with my current job that I’ve been with 2 months.
I’m thinking of just quitting on the spot saying adios amigos. How would you guys quit?
I’m planning to use the extra day off now to start a blog, build up my IG accounts, dip into drop shipping and YouTube. The lot! I’m pumped.
