Letter to an Entrepreneur- Before You Say “I Quit!”

- Advertisement -

Dear Entrepreneur,

Are you having a rough day at work? Before you read on, I will need you to breathe…relax! The feeling won’t last forever, but anything you say or do is going to create either a negative or positive impact in your life.

Now that I have your attention, this letter is dedicated to you…yes you! So I need your full attention because what you are about to read may stop you from making the wrong move you’ll end up regretting for the rest of your life.

Are you feeling underappreciated? Do you think you deserve more than what you are given? Are your colleagues and Bosses taking the glory of what is rightly yours? The truth is you are not alone.

This is life; you are going to get more of those not so cool stuff, however, if you are quitting your job because of what you are experiencing in your place of work then you are about to make the biggest mistake of your life! So I will need you to hold on a while before you submit your resignation letter.

Don’t get it wrong; this article isn’t meant to change your mind from quitting your job and starting your own business. However, there are unlimited benefits you can get at your place of work, yes I am serious.

Your place of work is your training ground… you don’t get prepared after quitting your job; you prepare yourself before quitting. If you still want to quit, I will need you to answer the following questions sincerely;

Where do you like spending your time?

Time is a “growth booster” whatever you spend your time doing is going to yield fruit whether bad or good fruit, it all depends on the seed (whatever is taking your time).

If you love spending your time drinking coffee more than anything else, in no time, you will be able to tell the exact content of your coffee without taking a sip.


The point is, if you are quitting your job because there is no time to hang out with friends, then your business will suffer from “malnutrition”. If you can’t spend time building other’s business while under strict supervision, how sure are you that you are going to spend time growing your business when there is nobody to sack you for not doing your job.

How you ready to serve?

Most people quit their jobs because they treat them as “modern slaves” either from customers or the bosses.

As an entrepreneur, if you are not ready to serve people, then forget it! Being referred to as the boss is cool, but it takes a genuine server to be a successful entrepreneur. No one knows you more than you do, be sincere to yourself and answer the above question.

Are you teachable?

If the reason you are quitting your job is that you are tired of being told what to do, then, please…don’t quit now. You have a lot to learn.  Most successful entrepreneurs have one thing in common- humility; the ability to learn from whomever, no matter how big or small they are.

As an entrepreneur you are going to meet a lot of people, some may not be in the “package” you expected, if you are not humble it will be difficult to get what they have.

Do you have a mentor?

No matter how unique your idea is, someone else has already gone ahead of you. You need a mentor; it may not necessarily be in person; you can learn a lot from a particular author. You not limited to have one mentor; you can have more than one mentor.

Are you a quitter?

Most people will answer no, to this question. Once again, you need to be sincere with yourself. Why are you quitting your job? Is it because it is no longer fun?

Or you genuinely want to impact lives with your products and services? If your primary goal as an entrepreneur is to earn more than what you are currently making, then you are in for a big surprise.

There will be a time in your entrepreneurial journey when everything will be a big blah, you may get bored to your teeth, and then you will need the passion for your job to scale through. It is essential you go for what you love and not for what will earn you big bucks; it takes passion to build your company.

Before you send your resignation letter to your boss, take your time to answer the above questions. If your answers do not fit an entrepreneur, take down resignation letter, buckle your belt and train yourself.


For you to be a great leader, you must be a great follower. So learn all that you can learn from your current job, while you work on being a formidable entrepreneur.
