About Quitting the Day Job 0

Last week in “Quit? Take No for an Answer?” I questioned the common idea that entrepreneurship is about never quitting and never questioning. Or perhaps we could call that quoting others who did. Today I read a great follow-up to that idea, in which Pamela Slim of Escape From Cubicle Nation gives a very thoughtful analysis of the critical question of leaving an existing job to start a company.

Even the comments on that post are worth reading. This isn’t a matter of rah-rah enthusiasm or relentless entrepreneurship; you should know what you’re doing.

Since this is the second thoughtful and very useful post I’ve cited from Escape from Cubicle Nation in two weeks, I’ve also added that blog to my blog roll here at Up and Running.
