I enjoy working for myself. Being my own boss and making decisions on pretty much all aspects of running a self employed business.

Being around my family and actually being able to see first hand my little boy grow up. When I was in full time employment I literally saw very little of him during the week and so would only hear what he had done that day after I got back from work, which quite often was half an hour before his bedtime.

Fortunately, I am now in a position to be able to pick and choose my projects, decide on which direction I would like to head in and have the energy to concentrate on my own pet projects in parallel.

Despite this rosy picture, there is a side which takes some getting used to. It is something which in hindsight seems really obvious, firstly...

YOUR HOME IS NOW YOUR OFFICE

Quite often, despite the nice set up, you will have off days. When projects have taken longer than you expected, or when invoices haven't been paid. This is when you become a right ol' grump. In the office you would bite your lip and simply get on with it. Whereas at home it is the ones around you that bear the brunt of your grouchiness. It takes a long time to be able to separate home from work. But it is possible, like anything you need to learn to walk away from your home based office and leave all the problems for the next morning. Make a prioritised list and leave it on your desk for you to tackle first thing.
