I love to work hard in periods - but I can only handle it if I have some downtime in order to recover afterwards. Summer is the perfect time to slow down, relax and have time to think clearly. It's so easy during hectic periods to forget your direction (in business terms: strategy) - therefore it's the perfect opportunity to focus on your strategy in less hectic times.
While it is understandable to think that it's impossible to start a business while having full-time commitments elsewhere, I wanted to prove to myself that it's not necessary to quit everything in order to take a step in to entrepreneurship. I know that many people are afraid to fail, and that it's too big of a sacrifice to quit their full-time job and "miss out" on their planned career path, and I'm telling you that you don't need to make that choice that early on.
