Start my own startup vs keep working at big companies
I have a few ideas that I want to persue. It feels that I will regret not starting something of my own and giving it all of my focus for a couple of years.
I have been with startups before as an employee and have seen it grow from almost inception to a merger with another company.
However, being at an L6 level with a young family (kid and spouse who works but not at faang), it does feel irresponsible to give up on the high tc and financial security for family.
The opportunity cost of failure will be very high in monetary terms but regret of not pursuing my own idea will hurt a bit too.
Tried working nights and weekends on my own but that is extremely hard with work, bay area commute and family.
I wonder what the blind community thinks about this situation. I am pretty sure, I am not the first person who had these questions.
Eager to hear thoughts especially of someone who made a choice like this.
