When I started our CPA practice, I kept my full time job working for a technology company. After working nights and weekends for three years, I decided to go full time into our business. I was greeted with some doubters but I found most people to be wonderful supporters. The one thing I had to remember is to ask for their support and help. Very few people will help you unless you ask. One day I see the world having more solo entrepreneurs because it will be easier for people with special talents to be paid what they are worth. Simple for the fact that the speed of the internet has increased so much it does not really matter anymore where you are located. We have clients all over the world. We can do video meetings with people in the Ukraine as easy as they were in our office. If you want a quick side job, you can join uber, lytfe, or elance for a fast opportunity. You just have to be prepared to cease the opportunity.
