Subtle differences

The differences between being self-employed and being an employee are quite obvious:
  1. No guaranteed paycheck vs paid each month
  2. Commuting to work vs walking to your office
  3. Having an office/room/cubicle vs having whatever you choose to have as an office
  4. Being clean and well-presented every day vs jammies
  5. Doing what you are told vs doing what you choose
  6. Being paid what they allow vs making as much money as you can
However. Comma.

Some very Very VERY good benefits are much more subtle. One of them presented themselves to me today. This benefit is becoming more and more of a motivator for me to be self-employed. It used to be the money potential only.

Now, it is this:

7. Being forced to suck up other people's SHIT because you HAVE to get along with them to get the work done vs choosing who the FUCK I will deal with.


Okay. I feel better.


  1. Sounds like a bad day. Hope it's getting better!

  2. hang in there'll get to your dream. I know it.

    In the meantime, another benefit to self-employment vs. being an has to be a bitter end when you have to lay off yourself.


    thanks for the encouragement to me as're treasured, kiddo.
