NewBizIdeaDo you have a passion for turning your idea  or hobby into a business but a fear of giving up the steady salary and perks of your current job?  It can be frightening to pin your financial well-being on a start-up given that many businesses take quite some time to turn a profit.  Many of us don’t have the deep pockets or outside funding necessary to pay our bills while waiting for our business to prosper.

Dan Simon, a contributor to Forbes online magazine, has profiled two successful entrepreneurs who have found a different path.  They both work full-time at demanding jobs while also tending to their start-ups.
