You have a good career that pays well, but you want to strike out on your own. Should you quit your day job to pursue your dream? Well, not just yet, advise Lolly Daskal, Leo Widrich and Elizabeth Gore, writing for Fast Company.
Rather than taking a great leap into the entrepreneurial unknown, the three authors recommend a measured retreat from your current position.
1) Stay where you are for now. Use your job as a “springboard” to your new business, suggests Daskal, and do not quit until your new venture is successful and profitable.
