Many people may tell you that you need to drop everything to start your own business. As evidenced in my own career and in those that I mentor, starting a business doesn’t need to be the end of working for or with others.
Recently, two local students approached me about starting businesses. Both seemed very excited about their lines of business but knew that it would require a great deal of time and dedication. We have been working together on developing time management and resource management strategies to ensure they balance work and personal life as well the needs of their side businesses.
While both of these entrepreneurs want to eventually do the work they are doing full-time, they realize that it’s best to let it grow naturally while keeping afloat through traditional employment.
