Should I Quit My Job to Start an MLM Business?
Many people in the past have asked me if it is smart to quit their regular job or career to focus more on building their MLM business. Honestly, I must admit that there is not one blanket statement answer to this question that applies to all situations. In my experience, this issue is something that needs to be addressed more on an individual basis to determine which course of action would be both smartest and most effective.
When I started my Kyäni MLM business I chose to keep my regular 9-5 job simply because of the feeling of security the revenue gave me. I know I could have survived a little over a year without any revenue coming in through my new Kyäni endeavor. What I did not want to have happen was to have my new MLM business fall apart and leave me with nothing.
Keeping my job while starting an MLM business was tough – maybe one of the most grueling things I have ever done. It was hard, but it taught me so many things that I now use on a daily basis while running my Kyäni business.
If I were in your shoes, I could consider the following questions:
- Do you need the money coming from your regular job in order to survive?
- Are you able to essentially work two full time jobs if you need to keep your day job?
- What amount of money do you want to see from your new MLM business?
If you do not need the money from your current day job, then chances are that job may prohibit you from growing your MLM company as quickly as you would like. It is so easy to think about quitting your job to focus on building a business, even harder to go through with it. On paper, though, if it works for you then go for it with all you’ve got!
If quitting your day job is not quite in the picture yet, you may need to re-adjust your expectations of your new MLM business and its immediate success. There will be all sorts of things clamoring for attention in your life – many of which fall into the category of unnecessary distraction. You will need to be deliberate with your time and aggressive when deciding which activities are worth pulling you away from growing the business that will eventually bring you home from work and allow you to build a thriving business.

Initially, I limited my time to just family events and quality time each night. Everything else was, to me, a pointless activity unless it somehow helped me build my business. I honestly attribute a portion of the quick growth of my company to this decision. Would I not have been so aggressive with my time, I think my Kyäni business would have taken longer to succeed.
Finally, you will need to set some type of goal about the amount of money you would like to earn on a monthly basis. The goal is simply to push you to get to a certain point in your business. If you do not know what you are working towards, your success will always be minimal. However, if you are working towards a certain goal, you will naturally work harder and more productively to accomplish that goal and show yourself that you can do hard things.
If you are unable to quit your job to build your MLM company, chances are your first financial goal will be the amount you need to make in your new company in order for you to quit your job.
Quitting your job to start a company can be very frightening, but it does not mean you should not do it. If it is something that you are able to do so you can build your MLM company faster, then go for it. If you are unable to quit your job now, you can certainly set the goal to do so soon. Once you are able to do it, prepare to see faster and further growth in your MLM business.
