Many hopeful entrepreneurs spend at least some time straddling the fence between the security of the corporate world and the dream of running their own shows. How do you know when it is time to turn your attention full time to your budding business?

"Our most difficult situation to overcome was the 'in-between' stage that many small businesses encounter — that period of time between working a full-time job and creating a start-up," said JP Jones, co-owner of Collipsis Web Solutions, a website developer and provider of email and marketing services. "The start-up required tons of time and attention, but wasn't providing enough income in the early years to be full-time employment for me and my co-founder."

Cleveland, OH, March 27, 2013 - 31 Days of Marketing has been named a Winner in the 2013 Small Business Book Awards in the category of Marketing.

JP was recently featured on Entrepreneur Wilderness, a radio show started by London native Oyenu Olugbala with the purpose of discovering what other people are going through in the pursuit of success.

In her interview, JP was asked to prescribe advice to someone looking to start their path to entrepreneurship. Her response was as follows:

"Just stick with it when it gets tough. In the beginning it's new and fresh...but as you get into it, it becomes more work. Ultimately, there's a lot of responsibility that's involved in it."

Although starting a small business from the ground up may be scary, JP assures listeners that although some days can be "nitty-gritty", other days make it all worth the endeavor.

It's that time again--when everyone focuses on what they would do differently than last year. In honor of this new chapter, media personality Carol Roth asked her contributor network of business owners, advisors and entrepreneurs to share their own personal business-related New Year’s Resolutions for 2013. JP Jones reveals the following goal:

"In 2013, my business resolution is to allow myself more downtime. As a serial entrepreneur with 4 start-ups under my belt, my days fly by in a whirlwind of flurry and activity. For 2013, I will strive to take more breaks and attempt to work much fewer 18 hour days."

Will JP succeed in winding down? That remains to be seen. In the meantime, what about your New Year's Resolutions? Tell us how you plan on taking new business strides in the comments!

In a recent Expert Panel Article for Business Beware, JP Jones lends her voice to answer one of the ever-growing questions among budding entrepreneurs and seasoned business-owners alike: "Should I charge people for my time?"

Among other experts, JP advises colleagues in this dilemma to evaluate each meeting with clients and eliminate those that aren't absolutely necessary to development.

"In my own businesses," she writes, "I am working countless hours a day and preserving my time is must. Time spent on the phone or in face-to-face meetings cuts down on production time. As a result, early on we set a policy of eliminating as many non-mission critical meetings as possible."

The advent of tablets such as the popular iPad have changed business as we know it, and many are asking the same question: is it worth the purchase? JP Jones gives her input in an article published by Meridian Magazine.

"(Jones) says she uses her iPad as an essential selling and display tool. Graphics are vivid and the Internet connection is crisp,so Jones - who got her iPad the first week it shipped in early spring 2010 - likes to gather existing and prospective clients around her tablet to eyeball Collipsis designs. The trim iPad weighs less than two pounds and is easy to carry from meeting to meeting."

JP Jones was recently featured in an article on the Business Beware Show website. The article is a part of the Ask the Experts series and asks the question, "What’s the toughest thing about starting your business and how did you overcome it?"

As one of eight business owners who answered the question, JP offers her unique voice. For her, the most difficult part of starting her business was not the beginning, but the "in-between" phase. It took her over 3 years to become solely self-employed.

"Because my company is client-based I needed that time to build up my reputation and customer spread. There were plenty of days that I was overwhelmed, overworked and overloaded, but with sheer grit and determination I stuck it out—and today, I’m so glad I did."
