How To Bootstrap A Business While Holding Down A Job

Posted on Friday, Oct 28th 2011

By guest author Irina Patterson

Have a job? If you do, it’s awesome. You can use the paychecks to bootstrap a company. Here is how.

Join 1M/1M premium program today. Spend 50 hours studying the 1M/1M Curriculum. Do it evenings and weekends. In two to three months or sooner you will fully understand how to start and build a viable technology company, Silicon Valley style.

You will know how to pick the right idea, validate that idea, position your product in the market and get paid for what you created by customers who are delighted to buy and use your product.

You’ll put your brilliant idea through the 1M/1M validation methodology, and see if it has legs. If not, you’ll test another. You’ll keep going at it, until you find an idea that passes the 1M/1M litmus test, meaning someone needs your product and will pay for it today.

If you keep your job, you can do it right, even if it take you six to twelve months because you have the time. You don’t have to rush and push a half-baked product onto an ill-defined market.

Once you have a solid, validated idea, you can quit your job and jump in fully.

yeah, but doesnt your company own your work while you are working with them? plus for most people under non-competes it'll be impossible to start a competitor in the same industry cuz its highly likely that their idea relates to the same field of operation. unless of course you are in the anything goes land india where the lack of intellectual property protection and absent contract enforcements have both stymied innovative new enterprises and old enterprises both.

work that you do on your own time, on your own equipment is NOT owned by your employer. Getting a startup off the ground while working at a different employer is a practice that has been going on forever. It is a tried and true process.
