To be self-employed inspires many dreams and chief among them is the control you'll have over your life. No boss, no schedule, nothing but opportunity and happy times ahead for you. And best wishes to those of you in the office by the way. Well, I don't recommend bad mouthing the old boss and the other folks at the office; someday they may be your customers or_
There's more truth than fiction to this myth in my opinion. As a self-employed person you'll have a lot more freedom to make choices about how you spend your time, the priorities that you make and the way in which your money is earned and spent. The price for this freedom is the hard work and commitment you'll have to invest.
Naturally it's a worthwhile investment because you'll be able to draw a direct correlation between your efforts and the outcome you achieve. At the same time in order to benefit from this freedom you'll need to hold yourself accountable.
Holding yourself accountable (or being held accountable) is not a barrier to the freedom that you are seeking however. Accountability is a necessary component of the self-employed infrastructure and it is anything but restrictive.
In fact accountability is a catalyst for your success. It serves as a persistent reminder that the freedom you have is something you earned and something that requires continued effort to maintain.
So yes indeed you will have more freedom to live your life the way you want to. Like anything worth having there is going to be some hard work on your part, a bit of luck and a whole lot of determination. But what thing is certain, this dream is not a myth; it really is there for you.
Reach for the stars; they are within your grasp.
