did you leave a stable job or income to start a business?
myth: you need to work full-time on a new business.
myth: you need to raise money or spend a lot of money to start a company. (for example, both PebbleStorm and Predictable Revenue are profitable businesses built with less than $100 out-of-pocket)
myth: jobs are bad (well, jobs aren’t bad, but your boss can be)
if it’s taking longer than you thought to get your business off the ground, and you’re stressed about money because your savings are almost out, why not get a job (or do more consulting) to fund your dreams and business? especially if you have a family!
HELLO…you don’t need to work on a new business full-time. and if you have a struggling business, there might be ways to cut it back and shrink it so that you can put it on part-time “simmer” while you work full or part-time.

I’d love to hear from you in the comments…
PS: picked up the Predictable Revenue book yet?
