163: When Should You Go from Side-Project to Full-Time?

Arvid talks about why it's so hard to get this pivotal transition right.
Earlier this week, I talked to Michele Hansen of Geocodio on The Bootstrapped Founder Podcast. Michele co-founded the business with her husband and ran it as a side project for several years. Now, that's a long time to wait before you commit full-time to a project. We also learned during our conversation that there are many ways of determining when the right time is to make that leap: for me, it was reaching a specific revenue figure, and for Michele, it was something else entirely.

So let's explore this critical step today. When should you go from side-project to full-time? What are the significant catalysts that speed up this process?
