Enjoying Work!

I think that one of the best things about being self-employed is the fact that I can choose what I do. This means that if I have work that I do not want to do, then I can just decide not to do it. This can give me a real feeling of freedom and make me appreciate the fact that I am my own boss. Of course, in reality, I do not turn much work away as I want the money! However, just knowing that I have the freedom to do so, should I wish to, makes me feel really good.

The flexibility is fantastic as well and with children that really helps me. however, the pay is very low. If I calculate my hourly rate it can be very scary - it is well below the minimum wage. However, I feel that it is worth it. If you are thinking of starting your own business, you do need to bear this in mind though and realise that it will take a long time to start making money and you need to make sure that you do not waste money as the profits will be effected by every purchase that you make.
