Hi, I'm planning to start a software agency (solo or 2 person initially) while working full-time in a company. Any advice you could give me? Or, is there any problem with this?

Thanks in advance!

It’s possible, you’ll just be working long and hard hours, but if this is truly what you want to do and you know that there is a demand for the type of work you want to do, the effort will be worth it in the long run!

Keep it on the dl. I am for maximizing the return for our skills. The main reason why a lot of us keep the main job is because of benefits.

It’s a ton of work. The admin work is a full time job in itself. You’ll have to file invoices, manage contracts for your clients/staff, market your agency, etc. The paperwork is endless. Hire a manager so you can focus on your day job.

Read your current employment agreement, which may legally prohibit this.

I’ve been on the bench with J1 for about 3 months. I was worried that because I couldn’t find another project, I would get laid off so I found J2, which pays more, is very meeting heavy, but I really like. I’ve kept J1 because I’m still on the bench doing absolutely nothing and getting paid. Thinking about looking for a role on a project with J1 that’s not along my career path but will allow for me to do work with no calls so that I can manage both jobs. Does anyone have experience or advice?

• “If you can’t handle running a large sales org, then this makes sense, I’ll make sure your replacement can.” (I can and do, and will at my next role, making double the money.)
