Self-Employment


Tuesday, September 15, 2009

I haven't blogged in a long time. I was really busy wrapping up loose ends at my job during much of August. For 10 years, I worked about half-time, editing a journal for a law school. Then about two years ago, my eBay business really blossomed. And in the past year, I've grown a lot as an artist. I was getting too busy, and something had to go! So I gave my notice at the university early in the summer, but kept working until a replacement was hired and trained.

Since my last day at work a couple of weeks ago, I've really ramped up my eBay business and I went on a great camping trip! Now I'm in the process of establishing new routines for myself as a self-employed person. It's fun and sometimes more than a little scary!

    I can tell you from experience that it is both exhilirating and scary knowing that you are your only limitation to success! You will do well!

    As a self-employed person myself, I can tell you it is great, although, yes, scary. The benefits definitely outweigh the costs, though. Good luck to you on all your endeavors.
