Being able to quit your day job to work on your own startup business idea is a daunting task. A million questions arise, such as:
How can I afford it?
How hard will I have to work?
What happens if I fail?
For most people, it is impossible to give up a steady stream of income and throw caution to the wind to follow their dreams. However, it is actually possible to quit your day job and start up a business. In fact, Velocity has had members in each of it’s last three cohorts that thought the grass might be greener building their own company enough that they took the leap of faith. We’re putting this panel of experts together so that they may share their experiences on how they did it and how they’re doing it.
We’d love for you to attend this event, which will be held on Wednesday, February 25th from 5:30pm to 7pm at 400 Missouri Avenue in Jeffersonville, IN.
