Best of both worlds
Entrepreneurship does not have to be high-risk. Hybrid entrepreneurship allows you to take a thoughtful, strategic approach to business success without risking your livelihood. I started a business part-time in 2007, transitioned from corporate America in 2008 and have been growing my business ever since. And there are many examples of other successful hybrid entrepreneurs. Lisa Price, founder of Carol’s Daughter, was a hybrid entrepreneur for six years before transitioning into full-time entrepreneurship.
Whether a part-time or full-time entrepreneur, you have to be focused and you must be
committed; but you don’t have to bet the farm.
