How to leave my 9 to 6 Job
I am a big fan of your accounting skills and I love to read your all accounting post they are Knowledgeable and have good content.
I am an accountant and I am doing 9 to 6 job and this is the most pathetic thing which I do not like in my life. I planned to leave my Job so created my account in Upwork and other freelancing site and that did not work. I can’t leave my job because I have a family so I am looking if I get work then I leave my Job and became a full-time freelancer.
Hi Umesh, thanks so much for the compliment.
I’m so sorry to hear about your job situation. Unfortunately becoming a freelancer takes time. Before I left my 9 to 5 job, I got my QuickBooks ProAdvisor certification. I also applied for an Adjunct Instructor position at UCLA which allowed me to have a new group of potential clients each time I taught a class. I’ve written an articles on How To Start Your Bookkeeping Business and How To Get Clients which include ideas like this to help you build up a clientele. You’ve got to do that first and get it to where it can support you financially before you leave your day job.
Another recommendation I have is maybe you should seek another 9 to 5, one that’s not so awful. This will at least allow you enjoy the workplace until you can transition to a full time freelance position. I’ve included links to a few articles which I think will be helpful below. However, feel free to come back and ask any additional questions you may have:

Another reason why I recommend getting QuickBooks certified is because Intuit will include you in their ProAdvisor directory which small business owners use to hire a bookkeeper or accountant to come in and set up their books.
Best of luck,
