You don't have to apologize, explain, or be accountable to anybody but yourself. Entrepreneurs take on all the risks and sacrifice for being "in the game" and the win to loss ratio has always been (and will likely always be) painfully small on the win side; that IMO should afford the risk taker the freedom to do things as they see fit. Just as you don't have to ask approval to fail, you don't have to ask approval to succeed.

Thank you. You're totally right. In addition — I think side projects are the new way that developers learn. It's like learning chemistry from reading a textbook vs. actually mixing the baking soda and vinegar. Trying more side projects helps us improve the chance on getting on the win side.

I hope, though, my explanation will also help others in the same situation!
