Did you people think of AI consulting work on the side? Consulting is not
running a business in the "hard" sense of the word, and could generate a
cash stream while at the same time permitting to keep the focus.

80% of all new businesses fail. Even with an
excellent business plan, I think Eliezer is right, the
chances of success wouldn't rise above 50%. Also
correct is that the business would become your life.
You'd have to do nothing else for at least 5-10 years...
