Want to succeed with your start up? Try getting it going while you’re still employed.

Sure, that approach requires a tremendous amount of hard work, discipline, and sacrifice. But those are the same qualities you’ll need to succeed as an entrepreneur, whether you quit your job or not. Almost every successful business was built by an owner who worked incredibly, almost impossibly, hard.

The guidelines:

  1. Go lean.
  2. Be a Superstar at work.
  3. Create a challenging work schedule.
  4. Never whine about your challenging work schedule.
  5. Don’t spend profits, reinvest your profits.
  6. Wait longer than you want your quit your fulltime job.

Stay logical and focus on numbers rather than emotions. Don’t listen to your feelings, especially late at night. Listen to your business.
