I’ve come to the point that I need to go back to work and get a day job to live while I finish building my startup. Have overcome setbacks, co-founder issues & health problems & bootstrapped everything to this point but I’m out of money and mental energy being isolated, broke & working nonstop. Plus im in my late 30s so I’m worried if I stay out of the rat race much longer and if my startup doesnt become profitable, I will not be able to find a decent job in a tech company.
Also, if I pursue a job in tech sales or product management at a tech co, will there be a conflict of interest or other legal issues regarding code written after I’m hired? Will they allow me to work on my startup in my after hours? Can you launch a startup while working at a tech co? Any thoughts are appreciated.
