If I want to quit my job and devote full-time to my own businessbut itcould be seen as a direct competitor, how should I quit so I don’t get sued?

I currently manage the internet division of a company many divisions. On my own time, I’ve been working on my own project that is similar to the ebusiness and now want to quit and dedicate my full attention to my own business. I haven’t sold anything through my own site yet, and I definitely wouldn’t take any customer lists away from my current business. Additionally, the last year has shown solid increases in sales each month, so I obviously haven’t been sabotaging anything. I don’t want the owner to sue me down the road. What is the best way to go about quitting so that I cover my ass?
