Shifting from an employed to the self-employed phase of life is a high-risk decision which you must do with great care. Here is a way to get started with your start-up without quitting your job.
It is not yet time to quit your day job
Day jobs help develop some amazing skills which you can apply in your start-up. Further, you also learn to be more communicative and productive too. Your mentors at the day job can be your role models to teach you how to accomplish your goals. Know that even a negative experience helps to mold yourself. You learn teamwork and how to be flexible, which are great skills for an entrepreneur.
Venture into a side project
Whenever you take up a new project, you learn something related to marketing, product development, usability, customer support, and sales. They let you test your ideas and check where they go. Sometimes, the side projects can help you make some good extra income too.
