Back in August I gave 6 months notice at my job. I've been wanting to make the leap to working for myself for a long time. I have tried to do it part time but could never take care of people like I needed to, or do enough in the time that I had. It never seems like your ready to make that jump so I set a 6 month deadline to force myself.
Currently I am still working for someone else two days a week. Luckily, I have that option, it is letting me ease out on my own a little slower. This lets me be open five days a week, Wednesday through Sunday. It also gives me more freedom over my schedule. My son is 16 years old and I feel like I have missed too much time with him, but now work won't interfere when there is a chance to do something with him, I can just close and go. Yes, there are limitations to how much I can do that but it should be easier then ever.
So this is the year that I am really pursuing my dream of working from home, and working for myself. I've made the leap so now I'll I have to do is make it work.
