Question by Aphextwig: Can I run a legit internet business and still have a 9-5 job?
I’ve got a great internet business idea (who doesn’t) but don’t want to give up the day job just yet. I want it to be legit, limited company while doing it in my spare time. Is there any documentation to show the best way to go about doing both. Or do you have any tips?
@Zarg222 Thanks. It’s not the time constraint, although it’s consultancy based so it’s not as simple and stuffing an envelope and posting it. It’s the legalities of tax and second salaries etc that I’m uncertain of. Can I take a salary from the internet job while doing a normal job.

internet businesses are designed to run by themselves – all you have to do is check for orders and emails at night, and do marketing, advertising, etc – I seriously doubt you will be that busy right from the start that you can’t handle it evenings and weekends – it might never get to being a full time business that would allow you to quit your day job – very few people are that lucky
