Sometimes people become entrepreneur’s start their business when they have been downsized and unemployed. I’m in that category. I have wanted to start my own consulting business for many years but decided to play it “safe” and keep working for an employer.

Due to my hesitation, I worked at a crappy job that I truly hated. It was four long years. Let me tell you there’s nothing “safe” about losing time. Finally, I was let go. Thank God.

Since I was unemployed, I made the decision to start my own consulting business. The funny thing is I found clients right away and was able to make money right away. It’s not easy freelancing but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Some get started while they are working. All you would need to do is work your regular hours at your job and then work additional hours at your business. Some find this challenging to do because of the additional hours. However, you do work a lot of hours per day when you work for yourself.
