As an executive career coach, I often encounter entrepreneurs who have left the corporate realm to launch their own business ventures. For a variety of reasons, some want to transition back to a corporate role, but they're unsure of how to go about it.
Driven and innovative business leaders sometimes seek room for experimentation. Entrepreneurship allows them to explore a passion they were unable to focus on working in a demanding role for a corporation. If the venture takes off, they stay, or they eventually sell the business. If it doesn't, they seek employment again.
