When a person materializes an idea in an entrepreneurial reality it is necessary to begin with zeros, practically with the “nails”, even more so when you do not have the capital or the people to start with big projects. When you are alone you have to work hard to make yourself known for work and quality, after having a good name before others, it is more likely that the product or service will start selling for itself.

Money and obligations are some of the reasons why people do not withdraw from a stable job while starting out with their business idea, which is not bad, because ultimately the future of what is being built is uncertain. However, there comes a point where the same need for work and commitment will force him to make a determination about the stable work he has today.
