When is the right time to dedicate 100% of your time to your startup?

Hey! This is a really great question to ask. I'll speak from my own personal experience and other people I know who have dropped out of school/quit their job.The most common pattern I've seen is that people work on this as their side project until it starts to interfere with their work, and where they get some no equity funding from entrepreneurship competitions or incubators (usually around 20-50k ish). Some individuals also give themselves deadline to "work it out" before they go back to full time work. For example, some people save X amount of money to work on their startup full time for a year, and if it doesn't work out, they go back to their job. It's all about the amount of risk you want to take. Generally, I would suggest working on it as a side gig until it gains some sort of traction or funding. That's just my 2c, but I'm interested in learning what other people thing too :) And good luck!
