What could cause a great artist to just quit for no apparent reason?
Quitting your day job to pursue art full-time does not happen in a vacuum. As you begin to plan for how to make it happen, begin with your current and projected income for the next 6-12 months. How much money will you need to pay the bills comfortably? Remember to include: rent/mortgage, car payments & insurance, food, utilities, medical insurance, childcare, entertainment, and other household expenses. We recommend quitting your job when you have at least six months of income in the bank. We then recommend waiting until your monthly business profit exceeds your personal expenses.
