    hello, please be gentle with a newbie here!

    i am just wondering where someone would stand if they were currently employed, but wanted to start their own company, but continue to be employed with their current employer....

    answers on a postcard please!

    Could you clarify a bit? When you ask where they'd stand, you mean with respect to....??

    As far as being able to wear both hats simultaneously (employee, self-empl), that depends on the nature and obligations of the job, and of the contemplated self-employment activity. (And possibly on any non-compete and/or employment contracts you might currently be subject to.)

    There's plenty of good advisors here, but they'll need a little more to go on. Thanks! (End of postcard)

    Welcome to our business forum Centurion, that's a pretty broad question and ArcSine has given you some pointers. If you can please provide some more info we will help you as best we can.

    May i know what type of company are you going to open? What are you going to sell or offer? Have you plan anything regarding all this? Because a plan can guide or help you along when you are building up your company. Without a plan, it will be slightly hard compared to having a plan. :)

    In just anything, there’s a risk and sacrifice you have to do. If you think that you’re capable enough to leave you r full time employment you can do so. And yes, having a concrete plan will be very effective.
