Dear (boss), 

In the last few weeks, it’s come to my attention that I am in a position to try my hand at freelancing full time.  This is something I’ve wanted for myself for quite some time, and with my upcoming wedding, and various other life changes, things have aligned to create the perfect timing for me to pursue a dream of mine.

I very much appreciate the time I’ve spent with you and with this company and will no doubt benefit from the experience you’ve afforded me.  It is my sincerest wish that we keep in touch as professional contacts, and I wish the best for the future for you and for (company).  

Effective today, I am submitting two weeks’ notice of my last day of employment at (company).  During this period, I would be happy to help in interviewing and training my replacement. I would also be willing to participate in an exit interview, if (company) would like that opportunity. 

Please contact me if you have any questions.

I’ve quit a few jobs before 🙂

Good luck, and congrats!

Maybe start your business on the side first. Get it going and when you have some comfortable cash flow and a good row of clientele.

Keep it as brief as possible – you shouldnt explain why you are leaving and where you are going next in your resignation letter. “I am writing to inform you of my resignation. While I have enjoyed my time with X company and learned much while here, I will be moving on to another opportunity. Please accept this as my two weeks notice.”
