Part Time CTO , Technologist with 20yrs experience
Everyone has a story. i have an idea i have been working on/off nights and weekends but its so scattered the progress is limited. So I contemplating a change to give it the focus it needs.
I see 2 major options
1.) Seek seed funding to give it a proper 6-8month of landing strip and commit 110%
2.) Stop the 8-7pm job in favor of the freelancing to self bootstrap and commit at least 50%
I have very adult constraints so living on ramen or mom/dads garage aren't an option.
I'm curious what paths others who have faced this very dilemma have taken and how they weighed the equation with a bit of hindsight.
