Before I went full time with my companies, I was working as a Business Technology Analyst for Deloitte Consulting for a couple of years. Figuring out the best time to jump into the boat with both feet and knowing you won't fall short or drown is one of the toughest decisions for entrepreneurs. I asked myself this question all the time and spoke about this topic with mentors and business folks that I respected. Ultimately, I continued working my day job and ran my side business during the nights and weekends until the business made enough revenue and profit to replace my day job. At that point, it was a no-brainer that I could increase revenue greatly if I could dedicate an additional 40 hours (80 hours total) and be solely focused on the business.
