A group of of successful business owners shared with us their experiences of resignation. Resigning isn't easy, no matter the circumstances. But you can quit a tedious job either tactfully or out of clumsiness. LinkedIn recently turned to shiny business people for advice on how best to quit from work.

Here's what Richard Branson, Susie Orman, and 6 other successful business owners shared with us:

Richard Branson: It is better to build bridges than to burn

Richard Branson has never had a boss who could come and say, “I'm leaving!” He is the boss himself. But Branson may have spoken about his vision of the situation from a presidential point of view. Many of Virgin's talented employees have resigned to start their own business.

According to Branson, those who quit to open their own company have left with a feeling of gratitude:

"I've always wanted them to succeed and we've always stayed friends and I'm sure we'll definitely cooperate in the future."

He recommends a clear explanation of the reason for the resignation. Describe what you want from the future, in an effort to maintain a good relationship with your previous employer. Who knows, maybe your paths might converge someday.

The last point, according to Branson, is of particular importance:

“ Think twice before deciding to burn all of the bridges. Instead, wouldn't it be better to build new ones? ”

Susie Orman: Listen to your inner feelings

“ If you think it is time to go then go. ”

The financial counselor educator once felt it was time to stop the CNBCN TV show she had been on for 13 years.“ Something has changed, ”says Orman.

I woke up early in the morning and suddenly realized it was time to end Suzie Orman's show. My heart was telling me: It is time to leave. ”

In her opinion, making a decision like this means controlling the situation:“ If any false reasons cause your survival, when you decide to actually resign, you will hardly be able to dictate the terms of your resignation. I made the decision myself and left with no regrets and no sarcastic comments.

Robert Herjavik: To leave something does not mean that you have achieved nothing.

"In my opinion, leaving does not mean losing. It means changing direction," writes investor and best-selling novelist and participant on the TV show Shark Tank. Herjavik prefers not to talk about "resignation" but about "change in strategy", because in people's minds, "resignation", "leaving something", is associated with "failure", "loss": "In general, call it what you want but give up.

A strategy or quitting work does not mean losing. It never happens that you win in everything and everywhere. "

It is important that you understand your strengths and sometimes this can only be achieved by letting go of something. This is why Herjavik thinks resigning is an opportunity to achieve something bigger.

JT O'Donnell: Do not accept counter offers under any circumstances

It might happen that your boss will try to persuade you to stay, promising you a promotion, new opportunities, more money ... Jay T. O'Donnell, founder of CAREEREALISM, recommends resigning whatever the circumstances.

Why? If you give in to your boss's attempts to persuade you to stay, it is possible that no one will trust you in the company anymore. They may even deal with you in a negative way. They had to beg you.

Your enthusiasm for new opportunities will not last and you will eventually resign, losing on all fronts. You stayed in the company, and eventually gave up, and so you wiped out your boss's trust entirely.

"If you decide to resign, do not hesitate. Show your personality, hold on to your correct decision and show everyone that it is not just about money."

O'Donnell even wrote a letter that you could have with your boss if he was too insistent:

“Thank you so much for appreciating me, this honors me. But I want to start something new. I might not like that. And if so, I promise that I will contact you, I admit. That I have committed such a foolishness and ask you: What can I do in order to return to your company. Even if I like it, I want to stay in touch with you. Because I hope to learn something new, so that it becomes more useful to your company at a later time. Then I will be able to Come back and help develop your business. "

Before I resign from my previous job I've made sure I accomplished big time. After the evaluation and I've been awarded as the top performer I was never ashamed to resign. I know I did my job well and you know what they told me I can come back anytime I want. So every time I go to my country and I have enough time to stay, they want me to work with them still even if it's a couple of months just. And I feel great. Leave a good impression. Don't just leave.
