Working full time and creating an online business…

Are you one of the people who is trying desperately to outgrow your corporate shackles and run your own business? Are you trying to do this by doing both at the same time?

If so – then you are just like me. If you are in this situation – you’ll find that it is extremely difficult to get enough time to do all the things you want or need to do between getting home from work and getting into bed – exhausted.

How do you manage your time? How do you manage your friends, family and significant other?

Starting a business is as difficult as you make it and having a full time job while developing a business on the side is possibly one of the most difficult ways you can approach it. Your own situation essentially dictates the choices you have. I personnally have been saving to get married for a long time (getting married is expensive these days ;-) ) and therefore have no option but to continue working a full-time job.

I cannot leave my job cold turkey and wait for the business to start generating enough revenue to cover day to day costs as people want to eat when they arrive at your wedding reception and the hotel doesnt do credit.

Other situations you could be facing include :

  • children (they gotta eat)
  • mortgage payments
  • car payments
  • anything else that requires money

These are the sorts of things that require a full time steady income.

Are you in this situation? If so – please take the time to explain how you manage to invest enough time in your fledgling upstart…
