You’re working from home. You are an independent contractor, a business owner.
No more commuting. No more office politics. No more venturing outside when it’s 25 below zero (with wind chill) and scraping 2″ of ice off your windshield. None of that.
You’re the boss!!! Lord and Master (Lady and Mistress?) over all you survey!!
Just you, the dog (or cat), your computer, and a cup of fresh coffee taking on the world. Sure sounds like a little piece of heaven, doesn’t it?
But at some point (probably no later than mid-April) you’re going to discover one of the ugly downsides of being your own boss.
And if that’s not enough, there’s budgeting, tracking the money folks owe you, figuring out if you’re charging enough, etc…
