Often I meet highly competent professionals who are between jobs and “in the perfect world” would start their own business as consultants, passing on their invaluable knowledge.
They tell me that they are clear that’s what they want to do but they are reluctant to fully commit as they are the main breadwinner, they have a big mortgage, or “want to see how it goes”.
Typically, they start off with best intentions, by taking on a part-time employed role and aim to develop their business in the remaining available time.
They are embarking upon, what I call, the “I can have it all strategy”. Which, by the way, is doomed to failure.
