I always like to think that when I’m in my 50s and PAID that I will look back on the very first year I was freelancing and blogging full time and laugh. Or maybe laughing is too harsh—let’s say I’ll be very thankful for those days because it taught me about sacrifice. And funny—I’m writing this post and looking at the date and just realized that last week (10/15) made six years since I handed in my last resignation letter. I stayed for two weeks after (because I’m considerate, of course) and then my last day of working for someone else was October 29, 2010. A lot of folks think that move was so brave of me and some even thought I had it made. Nope.
