Hi All - I`m a new member as of today to startupnation.com! What a great site. I have an issue that is probably common to most entrepreneurs so I`m hoping you may have a wealth of advice for me! I am contemplating starting a career/life coaching business in the near future...possibly within the next year. My entire career has been in corporate positions and I have become accustomed to working the 40+ hour workweek and living my life to someone else`s agenda and am at the point of needing a significant change in my life. I have been thinking about the true passion I have for the career counseling/coaching profession for some time and having just completed a fantastic coaching program myself I am totally inspired to make the change! The "problem" is that I`ve grown accustomed also to receiving my steady paychecks and having as much financial stability as any job can provide these days (especially given an economy like the one we`re in). How do all of you entrepreneurs deal with the financial income inconsistency and the great unknown of it all? What recommendations do you have? How do you supplement (if you do) your income to maintain some level of consistency? Any input you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
