My First Day as a Full-time Home Business Owner
Today, December 1, 2008, is my first day as a full-time home business owner. Pretty exciting. Pretty scary.
I “retired” from my very well-paid job in educational administration, to work full-time on my freelance writing/book sales business. I have been doing this part-time since 2003, but much of that time was spent working and traveling on my “real” job, so I haven’t done much.
It’s exciting, because I have lots of plans and ideas. I have several books to write, and working with a coach on a major re-branding effort, and I have the possibility of some joint venture opportunities. And, of course my 2 blogs for Bizzia (Small Business Boomers and this one) and my gig as Guide for U.S. Business Law and Taxes on About.com.
It’s scary because I need an income every month, to replace at least some of the income from my other job. I know I can do it. I believe I can do it. It’s about (1) working hard, and (2) working smart. If it’s to be, it’s up to me.Tags: full-time home business, new businesses
