Jason A. Duprat, Entrepreneur, Healthcare Practitioner, and Host of the Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy podcast weighs in on some of the most common excuses people make for not starting their own business. He provides solutions to the top objections and gives examples for overcoming the hurdles you may face when it comes to launching a startup.  



  • The top excuse Jason hears when it comes to leaving a W2 job to launch a new business – I need my income to pay the bills. 
  • In addition to income, he also hears – My full-time job requires 50-60 hours of work per week. 
  • If this is the case, then maybe you’re not in the right job. Entrepreneurs find solutions. Excuses, objections, and hurdles can all be overcome. 
  • You have to put the work in yourself. If you can’t do that, you don’t want it bad enough. 
  • One option is simple. Look for another job that doesn’t require so much of your time.  
  • Another option is to communicate with your employer. Ask if you can split your full-time position with somebody else so you can work part-time. 
  • This is a popular model that’s growing, especially in healthcare due to hospital and corporate medicine burnout.
  • Another solution Jason offers is finding a flexible position or working as a 1099 employee. When you do this, you can work part-time, as a PRN, or even full-time and then take extended time off.   
  • Jason also suggests leveraging your license to provide services for patients or other businesses remotely. This saves commute time which you can put towards working on your business. 
  • You will have to pay your dues. Don’t quit your job to start a business. Instead, start lean and part-time to get the kinks worked out. And when your business is making good money, then take the leap. 
  • In the end, the choices are yours to make. You are in complete control. You can make money on your terms and have financial freedom. 


  1. If your excuse for not starting a business is that you do not have the time, find a more flexible position or work on a part-time basis.
  2. If you’re thinking of becoming an independent contractor, explore remote options. There’s a tremendous amount of opportunity for remote work. 
  3. You don’t have to restrict yourself to working in a hospital or a clinic just because you’re a healthcare practitioner.
