I am currently applying for AE jobs in the software industry after a 6 month hiatus and starting my own company (hardware sales).
My own company isn't supporting me and my family completely yet, therefore the plan is to take on a sales role for the next 2 years and grow my business next to it. Reason for saying 2 years is that my current (safe) projection is that I will earn 2x my current yearly salary (OTE) within that timeframe.
My concern is that the managers will not hire me because they think that my priorities are not on the job, if I say that I have my own thing going on.
How would you position yourself in an interview? Would you say you have a company? Would you say this is a 2 year thing?
