It has been a bit of a tough time lately. After quitting my corporate job, I spent months financing the creation of the product and, most important, believing in the dream.
Now the product is ready to launch, we do have a couple of customer inquiries too.
However, after 8 months of serious savings and sacrifices, my money is over and I’m not that keen on a bank loan. I’ve been thinking to get an angel investor but I’m concerned he will add a lot of pressure - and I don’t aim to become the next Mark Zuckerberg. I just want to make a good living out of my startup and, in the long run, live anywhere I want without having to be physically there.
I was considering getting back into corporate (!!!) and get a fat salary (they would pay quite well for my experience) so I can keep financing my startup and…have a life too. Perhaps I would hire a sales manager, so he will take care of biz dev and customer service.
How does it sound? Bad idea?
Is there anyone who manages to work in a corp and run a startup too?
