It's fucking unbelievably challenging to get a start on a new venture. I want to know what your day job was, what occupations you held before you made your venture a full time pursuit, and any background. I'm sure I can google countless stories, but I want this info without all of the fluff. I'm writing, because of my own personal experiences. I'm a young college graduate, and was laid off from one of my first jobs out of college. I'm balls deep in my current venture, but having to gain employment- for now-seems inevitable. Again, what were you doing before your venture?
