Today is a great day. I am officially self-employed. I’m working from home, which is both awesome and horrible, and I can’t wait to dive in and get started. It’s awesome and horrible and it’s finally here.
I get to wake up at a reasonable hour (closer to 8 than 6―much better). I get to enjoy the comfort of my home office instead of a stuffy corporate one. I get to be myself and feel relaxed while doing a job I love to do.
Jokes about hygiene and socialization aside, I’m really looking forward to a casual setting to be comfortable and do what I love to do.
Then there’s the fear: Will I make ends meet? How will I find clients? Will I go stir crazy working from home? Is this really a responsible decision? The career move brings plenty of questions with it. I’m somewhat of a nervous nelly anyway, so this move is a scary one.
I wonder if I’m in denial about the daunting task before me. Maybe I’m fooling myself into thinking it’s easy, when really it’s incredibly difficult. I have a wife to support and mortgage to pay. I’m nervous about making this work.
No, it’s awesome. And it’s finally here.
So? Here we go. Just me vs. the world. Now who needs a website?
