Hi Janive,

   The question you ask has a different answer for each person.  It really depends on your situation.  If you currently have a job that would allow you to start your medical billing business part time then I would think that would be a great option.  You will be able to keep your income while working on building your business.  Not everyone has that option.  It may take you a little longer to build up your business since you won't be able to work at it full time, but getting started can be difficult.  Sometimes taking it slow is a better option.

But for others, jumping in with both feet works and that is the way they want it.  Putting 100% in right away and building up fast. 

It really depends on your circumstances and your personality.  When we started our business I kept my full time job for about 7 months before quitting.  Then I found I couldn't do what needed to be done to grow to where we wanted it to grow.

Best of luck to you.
