You sacrifice your sanity and money, just hoping you’ll make it. There is no better feeling than closing a deal knowing you fostered a good business relationship for future endeavors. Being a corporate associate may give you security and benefits, but there are always politics involved and many limitations.

You can rely on your steady paycheck and work benefits from your day job, but in your spare time you can work towards your dreams.

Becoming a “Corprapreneur” is not easy but it’s the best way to get started and succeed with your new business venture.
