Working for someone and working for yourself are two VERY distinct and separate things.Â For the last 10+ years, I would wake up and prepare for work and often leave the house before anyone else was awake.Â I would spend 8-10 hours in the office where I would have a voice in what was going on but ultimately I would be following the dictate of someone else.Â I would then come home in time to help set up the table for dinner, assist the kids with their chores and homework and then see them off to bed.Â I made pretty good money doing this too.
Now that I’m working for myself, I don’t have the luxuray of sitting around waiting to be told what to do (and still collecting a paycheck while I wait to be put to work).Â I’ve seen that there are a few different networking groups and a friend of mine has started his own.Â The idea is that I can get to know some other proffessionals and that we can reccommend one another’s services.Â So here’s who I met.
