Very true CraigL.
Working for yourself exclusively is the fastest way to see your business become a success. Not always practical in the grand scheme of things however. When you have other income it is a bit easier to put off things that need to be done in your business. You are exhausted because you are burning the candle at both ends, your financial needs are being met, so why not put a few things off. From there it becomes easier and easier to settle into the comfort zone of a 9 to 5.
I think the only problem with your thinking craig is that not everyone can afford to take that risk. I`m able to move home with my folks; therefore I can take some risk.
If I had a small family, that probably wouldn`t work out. In the latter case, isn`t there some value in learning for another business first?

Ha it`s funny that you bring that up craig because I`m in Limbo with that right now. I went to my interview and it turns out that they are a temp to hire or full time hire staffing company.
To me this represents a better advantage than my current job because I know when a given job will end. And when my business is in high gear. I`ll have a definite exit date.
But on the otherside of the coin: I went to work Monday and hated it because I kept thinking to myself "This is time I could be using to work on my own business" So I`m struggling with this issue now. If I`m working part time I guess that`s better than none. But for one job I`ve reached the point where (as the prisoner might say) I gotta get out. Im thinking of leaving net or no net. A huge risk.
I figure it`s not really supporting my lifestyle as it is so what`s the harm in leaving?
