Boy, I could have used this a few years ago when I was working from home.
There’s a lot more to running a business that isn’t sexy or fun. Parts of owning your own business are downright boring, tedious, and expensive.
I thought it might help if I pulled together the less glamorous aspects of “going solo” as I’ve come to call it to help others have realistic expectations. Hopefully being aware of these often overlooked matters, and some mistakes I made personally, can help you create a more successful plan before you take the plunge.
Working from home is NOT EASY. If you take the plunge, be informed. You might love it but it definitely ain’t for the faint of heart.
All that said, if you can go for it, do.
