Tired of the 9-5?

It’s 9:20am and you’re breathless. You have a cup of coffee in one hand and a to-do list three pages long in the other. You’re late again so forget about getting to the second page, no instead you’ll spend the next 15 minutes wondering whether you had enough sick days left that month to have called out sick.

I was once told that the difference between labor and work is that you feel a sense of pride in labor. Work is work you think, there’s nothing here that moves me toward productivity. You decide mornings like these can’t be a regular thing. You’ve always been interested in being your own boss and making your own schedule. You think why not now?  This is something that I’m sure you’ve all realized at one point.

So for my first post I offer you all an opportunity to reminisce:  Need a Business Idea? Here are 55 . This list is pulled from the book 55 Surefire Home Based Business You Can Start for Under $5,000 by Entrepreneur Press & Cheryl Kimball. Some of its highlights are event planning, personal trainer, and consultant. Think of when you were first starting out. Did you follow any of the tips listed? Or did you take a completely different route and end up with the same results? We’d love to hear your stories!
