The Time Has Finally Arrived!!!

Greeting brothers & sisters,
Well, the day finally arrived. I gave them my 2-week notice today. Leaving to work my handyman business full time (or a "full" time as I choose). The company said one week was plenty, so next Thursday (the 16th) will be my last day working for someone else. For the past few weeks, I've been coming home at 5:00, changing clothes, and working on my handyman projects until well after dark. Burning the candle from both ends, but my wife and I knew it would be short-term, and it has definitely helped kick-start the business. Now, after next week, I can start working on a regular schedule again.
And I'm going to make it a priority to block off time to ride the X more than I have been!!! I know..... famous last words.
Safe Riding.

Congrats Dart. As long as a person can make a decent living without burning out, being your own boss and in control of your own time is as good as it gets for working stiffs like us. I hope you stay busy, but not too busy.

First Congrats on your move to self-employment, it's a bold transition. I was a corporate sheep way too many years and if i could do it all over again i would have been self-employed in a trade and started my own business.

What is your age group? (IE, how old are you)
