As you settle on your idea don't let your excitement cause you to make bad decisions. It’s a good idea not to give up your day job right away, no matter how great an idea you have. Keeping your job gives you some financial stability while you work on your plan. You’ll need plenty of energy to do your paid job well and keep working when you get home … but that’s what it takes. The sacrifices can be tough but hopefully the rewards will be worth it if you can get your new venture off the ground.

A partner also brings another perspective and a chance to test your idea. As you settle on your idea don't let your excitement cause you to make bad decisions.
