This was a good post from Jacob on MTT.

I'm lucky enough to be an intrapreneurial musician and everything works beautifully. We are all on the same page and have all the same goals, so I get free reign. There is no stifled creativity whatsoever, and I could care less about being the center of attention. My bosses are my friends and mentors who are extremely passionate about the arts. I get paid to play my guitar all week and play in a great band 50 weekends/year. It's way too much fun!

I would caution anyone reading the article to check your motives when considering an intrapreneurship. If you are interested in simply using someone else's resources just to further your own career without any consideration of the company you work for, that's just selfish and it won't work. I've seen this happen and it gets quite ugly. Relationships suffer, reputations are destroyed, and there can even be serious legal repercussions.

I still get to pursue my entrepreneurship as a composer/publisher on the side because of how different the two gigs are. The only "downside" is I don't get to spend as much time on my solo project as I would like to. I hardly call it downside considering I get to have a full time job with benefits.
