Bad idea to be thinking about side business/start up for eventual exit strategy?

Definitely just do it. BUT don't do it while working your regular job. A guy in my team was open about his side business and everyone was fine with it. But I saw him doing stuff in the audit room for that side job and its not cool because the rest of us are working our ass off to meet deadlines and he is doing the minimum. He is slowly building a bad reputation

Read your employment agreement. I guarantee there's a clause stating that the firm owns anything created on their property. Let's say you create the. Exit Facebook, but discuss company business while using their computers. You could be fucked and forced to fork over equity in new company to your firm. Read all the Xs and Os of your contract before doing anything serious.

Do it. Just don't tell anybody about it or let them see you doing it. Good luck!

I need to get something off my chest. I am in a senior role in the company, mother and extreme professional. This senior partner one days calls me comment on my dressing sense that I need to dress more professional and appropriate. I am shocked and stunned. I am in my mid 30s, mother and professional. I never ever dress inappropriately. I asked him I don't understand the context here. A guy would have never received this kind of call. He goes "yes, there are double standards in the society for a women". Are you kidding me! Oh and by the way he couldn't notice I was working until midnight everyday to make the project successful. Give me your reactions please!!:)

Ended a dead 6yr long relationship with the only guy i had dated last year. He got married 5 months post our breakup. Being new to the dating game, fell for a fuck boy afterwards. Took 6 months to recover. Finally met a nice guy i clicked with, very respectful, dated for months... only for him to tell me he doesn't want a relationship. So back to square one, learning my lessons. Just wanted to vent for a second.
