When Katy Tuncer decided to launch Ready, Steady, Mums, a fitness business aimed at new mothers in the UK, she didn’t leave her day job at a consulting firm. Similarly, Gabe Haim and Ryan Schlotter, who launched their own micro-brewery outside of New York City, didn’t leave their jobs working at a car dealership. Like Katy,they liked their day jobs and they appreciated the financial rewards and the stability that came with full-time employment. They also didn’t want to put their families’ lifestyles at risk for a chance at building something of their own.
