    Agreed. So what can you do to start replacing your current income--while keeping your current job?

    Having 20-30 hours a week to work for your business is something. Definitely, enough can get a lot of things done and get some traction going. Then quit once you feel you have to and laser focus on it.

    You probably thinking of business in background a few more hours a day while working on something else too.

    The plan is to launch the website idea I have ASAP and learn valuable skills that will translate to my next venture. Then, either succeed at this first attempt and drop out, or learn from it and try something better on the next run, succeed and drop out.

    I just redid the name this morning after discussing it with a close friend last night/how she the name came across to her. It's more concise and I think fairs better for long term branding.

    My next plan tomorrow is to outline the tech/functionality the site I would need and then weigh the pros/cons of learning it myself vs hiring a website developer.

    The obviously pro in hiring the website developer is speed but the slower track of learning it myself would seem to have more long-term value. Thoughts?

    If the website is a straightforward website and/or its functionality can be done using Wordpress, then build it yourself. You'll learn a ton, which will help if you need to outsource later--it's WAY easier to outsource something you know how to do, rather than trying to hand off something & hope whoever you hire can/will do it the way you want.

    Ok, great and that makes sense. I'll see what wordpress can do and then go from there. Thank you!

    Wordpress does 99% of what you'd need to do for most prototypes - DM me if you have any questions.

    You've got good points about it maybe not being a good idea to just quit your only paycheck and start on a venture that probably will fail.

    Shows more common sense than most Gary V chanters.

    Here's what I'd suggest - take some of your best business ideas. Figure out what they have in common. Figure out what your role in taking action for those ideas will be. Maybe you'll do it all - but you'll probably outsource some quickly if its at all successful.

    Now that you've figured out your role - try to freelance in that role for a bit. You can often make enough to live off (maybe a bit spartan) of working as a part-time freelancer.

    Now you're:
    1. Getting paid to learn the thing you need.
    2. Seeing ways that other people's ventures get all *****'d up, so you're raising your odds of success.
    3. Saving enough extra time in the day to put into your venture.

    If it fails - no problem, you acquired a ton of skills, and can try again.

    Thanks Sean,

    I appreciate the advice and offer. I probably need more ideas that don't suck before I can identify themes but the control and scalability of websites and apps are appealing.
