There is plenty advice about how to develop a new business and when to leave existing employment and step into that new business. Conventional (and conservative) wisdom dictates that an entrepreneur begin the new business on the side and work on it tirelessly until it begins to generate an income large enough to cover the entrepreneur’s expenses and only then should that fortunate bugger leave his/her stable income for greener pastures.
What do you think? Is this the approach you took when you started out? Or did you just give your employer the finger and take that bold leap off the edge of the cliff?
