Can a Side Project Fund Your Big Idea? (FS175)

Some business ideas can be thought up and launched in a single afternoon. Others, however, require a ton of time and effort to get off the ground.

So, imagine this (or maybe it sounds familiar to you):

  • Imagine you want to support yourself, earn a living independently.
  • Imagine you have an idea that’s big, one that may not feasibly be able to bring in revenue in the short term, but who’s long term prospects are great.
  • What can you do for revenue in the short term that won’t take up all your time and energy so you can keep building your bigger idea?

It’s a great question, especially if you’ve been thinking and scheming about starting your own business for a while.

But it’s also a complicated question for reasons you may not see from the start, so it sparked a big conversation for Corbett and I.

So, here’s another great, honest, no BS conversation on the Fizzle Show. I hope it’s helpful! Enjoy.
