I am an entrepreneur wannabe. I have an engineering background. I have very broad albeit shallow skill set in various areas (web, mobile, GIS, general programming, math etc.). And I have a continually growing notebook of business-related ideas. However any particular idea seems to be just beyond the horizon of what I can implement with my available time and knowledge. I've attempted to start things before, but with little luck. (In one attempt, my employeer usurped my idea... lesson learned. And in another attempt, my business partner I ran unto a busy period in our personal lives and the idea seemed to evaporate.)
I imagine my problem is probably fairly common among those trying to break away from the typical 9-to-5. Have any of you hit this wall and then overcome it? What does it take? I've considered just quitting and chasing a focused idea full-time, but this seems overly risky. I've been trying to network towards more entrepreneurial people... but since I don't have anything in motion right now, I feel like I'm showing up to networking events without my "membership card".
