Stephan, what kind of a business are you doing? Depending on what it is you can start doing work that generates you money while simultaneously helping you build your business. For example, I worked corporate finance my entire career. I had a hobby turn into a nonprofit and had to choose between my career and the nonprofit which paid me no money. I pursued the nonprofit because it was a great opportunity (pro bono lawyers, office space donated on Wall Street). During that time I ended up consulting for restaurants and other clients that found me. It aligned with what I was doing because I got a chance to generate funds but also acquire new sponsors for the organization. Now it's led to me working with to business owners in NYC and Miami. So maybe there is something you can do that benefits both your needs.
