Giving up the day job?

Running a successful startup on your off time? Kenny Herbold reminds us that giving up the day job will cost more than just the salary:

According to a survey published by the US Chamber of Commerce in January 2004, employer paid benefits averaged 42% of an employees salary in 2002. That means you need an additional 35 – 45% more than your current salary to make up for these lost benefits.
