One of our incubator members posed this question:
My company does not have a policy about preventing employees from holding other jobs, so I'm not technically doing anything wrong. Obviously, starting a cake business isn't exactly how I'm going to get a corner office either.... but I feel I will need to let work know about my business as I start to get local press. I'm not really ready to quit or leave my day job, but I feel the need to be honest about what I'm doing. I just want my manager to hear it from me, not someone else. Anyway, any connections you can send my way on this or advice you have for how I should approach this tough topic, please share!!
