If your non-compete agreement has a 6-month term, this usually prevents you from working for a competing company or operating a competing business of your own for a period of six months from your termination or resignation from employment.

I'm not sure why you believe you will be paid for six months, unless your employment agreement provides for six months' severance pay upon termination.

You should ask an attorney to review your agreement before you take such a drastic step.
