The Boss of Me

Since I've been self-employed for the past eight days, here are some thoughts on my new life:

- I have a newfound appreciation for syndicated sitcoms... Friends, The Office, King of Queens, Gilmore Girls
- Daytime TV sucks... except for the Disney Channel. Around "after school" hours is a jackpot with Jonas L.A., Sonny With A Chance, Wizards of Waverly Place and more
- Degrassi is an amazing show
- I have the TV on a lot. A whole lot.
- I don't have to Windex binders anymore (at least not in the last eight days)
- I don't miss collating or hole punching
- Sadie has no idea what to do with me home all day. I seriously cut into her napping hours
- I love being my boss. No joke... I'm awesome as a boss
- I'm also the best employee ever
- I love the challenge of making Hems & Hers better and better each day
- I feel incredibly blessed
- I'm no less terrified of all this than I was eight days ago
- I'm also no less excited. I love my life right now. All praises to the Father!

Congratulations!!!! I went through this exact same thing last year when I quit a great job to do calligraphy full time. The beginning was hard for me, because I felt like I needed to be working every hour of every day to be successful. It was exhausting, emotional, and sometimes not pretty at all. My best advice to you is to get yourself in some kind of schedule. Not necessarily a 9-5 schedule, but something that works for you, and actually allows you to enjoy the perks of being your own boss, like blowing off work to go to the pool... which may or may not be my plan for the day! I wish you the best of luck - I know you will be successful!!!

Yay for being your own boss! How wonderful! And yes, daytime TV does totally suck.

Hems & Hers will only continue to grow, you are so talented!

Isn't working at home the best! I have done it since Sept of last year and LOVE IT! Doing work with my Gracie cat napping in my lap is great:) Totally agree with you about the syndicated TV note. DVR is constantly set for Friends, and recently, The West Wing. Will and Grace and Las Vegas are good too, but then I cycled through all the seasons and needed to mix it up.
