So how do you know when it’s time to branch out and try something new? I have plenty of friends who decided to chuck the corporate gig and work for themselves, and for a long time I never thought I’d be the type to try it but I find myself seriously entertaining the idea. Not that I’d do anything right now, of course, but it’s intriguing to think about starting up a side consulting business. My kids are not even in kindergarten yet but already we’ve started saving for college and the thought of contributing even more to those funds in the form of a side business is appealing. Plus there’s the whole “being your own boss” notion, too. So for those of you who have your own businesses – how did you decide it was time? What advice do you have? What lessons did you learn right off the bat? Any and all input welcome!
The Daily Krier is running commentary on what's happening in my life on a regular basis. I write about things that interest me -- my family, my hobbies, my career in marketing. The blog was born from my interest in writing, my need to become more involved in all things related to social media, and my desire to start on my personal brand. The blog title is a play on my last name. It's technically pronounced "kreer" but everyone pronounces it as "cry-er". The mis-pronounciation lends itself extremely well to the title, don't you think?
