Starting up as self-employed alongside working

Hello all,
I am thinking of setting up as self-employed in the near future but I'm concerned about the conflict of interest with my current job role. I would love to be able to resign from my current job and go straight to self-employment to avoid any conflicts but I do not think this will be possible without some financial stability. I was hoping to go part time at work so as to keep a steady income.
Just wondered if anybody had any experience/ advice on this?
Thanks in advance!
