++blue_cowdawg, and for OP, re blue_cowdawg's advice (from a *former* entrepreneur) about funding....

Starting up an under-funded company is a lot like smoking to commit suicide: it's not entirely reliable. But it *IS* at least (or so it seems to me) as likely to (figuratively, in this case) kill you and far more quickly! At that point not only are you "out" of your time and whatever you took from your pocket, but your employees are "out" in the cold without a blanket.

That said, while this post has generated some interesting observations, I tend to agree with the purality who would delete it, as inappropriate to this site.

    If anyone were offering to quit a paying job to work with me on this, I would refuse them. I do not want to leave anyone out in the cold. If you are too risk averse, this is not for you.

    Thank you

      That's some comfort.

      Good luck to you and your venture. I wish you no ill will, but I still am of the opinion you are going about this the wrong way on many counts.
