HI - I think an important question that many entrepreneurs have are trying to balance the demands of the home & the demands of their exciting new enterprise. If an individual has large demands at home e.g. (little kids, wife, university, and a part-time job) is it feasible to dedicate the necessary requisite time to achieve success in his dreams of building his idea into a real enterprise? Especially nowadays when it seems that the "New" billionaires were single, 20-somethings dedicating every moment of every hour to their idea without stop until they achieved their goals. When a person has that entrepreneurial bug & limited cash, but believes that he has a viable business model that can really take off & generate REAL revenues, what should he do? Should he believe the hype of the DropBox & Facebooks of the world or is there another road to success albeit on a different path? Thanks!
Unless your building a "Game Changer" like drop box, If you can be laser focused on the new business, while still keeping your old job (And not losing it) go for it. Make sure your spouse realizes you will be missing for 1-2 years of the relationship.
