Dropshipping can replace your 9-5 job when you have a successful dropshipping store with a good profit margin. Until you can make enough from your store to pay for your bills, do not quit your job!
It’s as simple as that!
Okay let’s elaborate on this shall we?
We understand that for most people the dream is to fire your employer and become your own boss. While this is a great fuel as it motivates you to keep pushing to become a successful dropshipper, we advise treading with caution especially when you’re just starting.
Dropshipping like every other business venture is a risk. What makes people successful is the confidence to take calculated risks, get up even when they fail, learn from that failure and try again!
Successful people just never quite!
Nevertheless, because there is an element of risk with every business venture, there isn’t a 100% guarantee that your first dropshipping store will be profitable.
You can do dropshipping on the side while having a full time job. When your dropshipping business can pay the bills and you have some savings. That’s when it’s safe to quit your job.
It’s good to take not just “risks” but “calculated risk” so if you have a 9-5 job that already pays the bills, don’t quit it yet!
