The easiest way to start a business is step one...find out what you are passionate about. This needs to be something you love as that is what is going to carry you through the tough times. Don't chase a trendy topic or area, find something you WANT to do and then package that.

Don’t leave your job without a plan. Develop it in parallel with your current work. Insure that you are not moving into a field where your current employer has you signed to a non-compete agreement, a non-disclosure agreement or some other piece of paper you signed with your employment that would keep you out the business.

Then - follow your value system. Examine your talents, your attributes and your affinities and develop an idea for a business that you would enjoy.

Evolve your plan as you continue working for your current employer.

Give your start up idea the following test:

  1. Do you have a product or service niche in mind?

When you launch if your plan risk analysis indicates high early challenges, phase into them gradually while retaining your present employment. As the business matures and your risks are mitigated, cut over to full time and resign your old position when you are comfortable doing so.
