I've been telling myself for many years now I've wanted to create a company of my own and get out of the corporate misery.
I am a software developer by trade, and have worked with a few startups in the past.
Recently (past 5 months) I have been working on an idea, that is already a proven business model, and working on everything myself from the business end to the technical (dev) end.
I've saved up atleast 6 months of money, in order to live at home, and work on my product. My parents do not want this and think I should get a product together first and then quit ... which seems the most logical until..
You factor in: I'm working full time (40 hours) + doing 12-15 hours of commuting per week. This part will only get worse as I am given more responsibility at work and need to work on call.
How have you dealt with unsupportive (close) individuals to you (friends, family, etc.)?
