Just read this amazing article by Chad – Figure it the fuck out. His observations are right on the money and totally apply to the startup scenario.I meet loads of wanna be entreprenuers who are not yet ready to leave their jobs and somehow want to convince me (and themselves) that they are going to be just fine while they are “working a full time job & doing a startup” or while one person on the team is full time & rest of them continue other full time activities. And when I tell them it wont work out like this and there is nothing called part time entreprenuership. You are not full time because maybe you don’t want it bad enough, many times that annoys them (and that’s my intent anyways – may be it will change them). Common arguments :
- I know a lots of folks who built big businesses while they also had a job
- We are moving in that direction and for next year one person on the team of 3 will be full time – so we are committed
- And the brahmastra How can I quit my job I have so many financial commitments?
Go and “figure it the fuck out” / Dont waste yours & mine time.
