A trend I am seeing increasingly is what I dub the “on-again off-again entrepreneur.”
The on-again off-again entrepreneur is someone who moves back and forth between being employed and owning his or her own business — multiple times.
It’s not an either/or question: either being an entrepreneur your whole life, or being employed your whole life. More frequently these days, people are doing both at various times, moving in and out of entrepreneurship as the exigencies of earning a living force their hands.
It may take several tries, and several bouts of corporate employment, before he gets it right. But the on-again off-again entrepreneur will keep trying.
