Entrepreneurs who give up their day jobs in stages are 33% less likely to fail in their start-ups than those who leave their jobs precipitously to run their new businesses full-time, according to a study of thousands of Americans by Joseph Raffiee and Jie Feng of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

There’s a similar crisis in the private sector, and plenty of leaders are approaching it with the same mentality as my friend.
But this time, it’s not the lawns that are drying up; it’s the talent pool.
