I have been toying around with the idea of transitioning from employee to entrepreneur. As my career has progressed, I'm starting to become less interested in climbing the corporate ladder, and more interested in building my own path. My idea would allow me to provide a service in an area that I am both passionate about, and have extensive experience. Also, the overhead costs would be fairly low.
I keep hearing that economic downturns can be great times to start a businesses, but I don't really know how to get started. My goal would be to start building my business as a side hustle, and eventually transition to working for myself fulltime. Does anyone have any advice or words of encouragement for making the leap (or at least positing myself to make the leap)?
