So you think you want to be your own boss. Make your own hours. Get to take credit for all your own ideas. The dream of small business!
You can do all of that. You'll also be responsible for writing your own checks. Finding your own clients. Dealing with customers and all their weird requests. Doing your own marketing, networking, invoicing, web design, inventory, phone answering and having no one to blame but yourself for running low on printer ink.
But you knew all that. Me too. The one thing that I wasn't prepared for was that I hate BEING THE BOSS.
