Today we’re chatting with Christine McAlister, who is a business coach, the founder of Life With Passion, and the bestselling author of The Income Replacement Formula: Seven Simple Steps To Doing What You Love And Making Six Figures From Anywhere. She helps high-achievers all over the world to replace their incomes, so they can quit and stay out of their 9-5 jobs, by building businesses out of their passions. 

I’ve mentioned in the past my experience both in the corporate sector as well as my transition into entrepreneurship. I try to stay away from talking much about business-building tactics and strategies. That’s just not the focus of our show, and there are a lot of people out there who are much more knowledgeable about that stuff. So, while Christine does focus on helping women build successful businesses, that’s not what we’re talking about today. Instead, we’re going to focus on how a working parent knows whether they should build a business of their own, or whether they would be happier in a corporate setting. 

Building your own business might create more flexibility in your schedule, but it can also add additional stress, both financially and in terms of your time commitment. Over the last five years, I’ve come to believe that different people can be happy in either arena. It’s really more about the choices we each make in our own lives. But the question is, how do you know whether building your own business will lead you to happiness, or if you should try to make things work in the corporate world?
