Ever feel like you have a split personality because you're straddling the line between your business and your day job? Like you have to be in one mode to be effective in one realm, and a completely different mode to be successful in the other?
Instead of jumping right from your stable income source into a risky business venture, taking steps to make sure you're setting yourself up for success will give you a better chance of building something sustainable (and fun).
Have you ever wondered how they do it? People who juggle day jobs and children but still have the energy and time to build insanely successful courses or write eBooks? They have the same 24 hours as you do, and like you, they had to start somewhere.Luckily, there is a simple way to start.

For most people, the purpose of a side business is to build something so you can eventually leave your job. Until you get there, though, it's important to create the best possible conditions for yourself at your current job.
