#29: Making The Transition From Employee to Entrepreneur with Klara Cu

Mar 28, 2023
Transition From Employee to Entrepreneur with  Klara Cu

In this episode…


If you’re not creatively inspired at your corporate job, Klara Cu joins us with relatable and actionable steps to transition from employee to entrepreneur.

Our stories are quite similar as I worked in investment banking for almost 25 years before deciding to pursue culinary nutrition full-time. Klara had a good job, a good team, and a good salary, but she was not creatively fulfilled. She started freelancing while in college and continued to do so even during her corporate career. She saved enough money and calculated the dream number to move on to entrepreneurship.

In April 2020, she and her husband both left their jobs to build their own businesses.

Her creative agency, Conquer the Digital Empire,  has enabled her to travel as a digital nomad. Her mission is to help aspiring Travelpreneurs leave corporate jobs they're unhappy in, so they can be full-time entrepreneurs doing what they love and have the freedom to work and travel wherever they want.

You will appreciate  the importance of being scrappy, responding to Facebook group comments, and being persistent when attracting clients.

Klara has started hosting live virtual workshops to help more entrepreneurs with their journey and is excited to launch a new workshop called "Create Your 90 Day Launch Plan in 90 Minutes" to help entrepreneurs successfully launch their courses or coaching programs. 

If you are in any type of transition period, I highly recommend you listen!


Highlights of this episode:

  • Importance of having a financial and emotional plan before transitioning to entrepreneurship
  • Meeting people where they are in order to help them transition successfully
