The Story

The Self-Employed Life

While some people romanticize the idea of the self-employed life, they are actually not far off in their description. Those who already live it cannot see themselves ever going back to a traditional job. And, why would you when you can set your own hours, work without micro-management or question, and design a workday that fits your personal life.

Is it hard work? Yes. Is it worth the long hours? Yes. Would you work this hard for someone else? Probably not.

In return for that investment in yourself, your self-employed life can deliver:

  • The satisfaction of creating something and making it grow.
  • The freedom to enjoy your personal life and family by working on your terms.
  • The flexibility to work anywhere at anytime.
  • The potential to make more money than you would have in someone else’s company.
