Freelancing?

Do I want to be a freelancer?

I’ve been thinking about this for years now.

I think it’s what I want to do.  Or at least where I want to start.

I’m scared, though.

Will I be able to get jobs?

Will I be able to support myself?

It’s so different from anything I’ve done before.

That’s what scares me.

It’s also what makes me want to try it.

No more phone calls

Last Friday was my last day at my job.

This is good news and bad news.

Good news: no more annoying phone calls.

Bad news: no income.

More bad news: taking annoying phone calls is the only thing I have any real experience doing.

I want to work for myself.  That’s going to be difficult.  I have no experience.

I’m going to have to get another job.

Not a phone job, though.

I’m undisciplined

I want to start my own business, but I can never find the time.  I don’t have the energy.

I’ve thought about studying martial arts to help me be more disciplined.  But there’s always some reason I can’t.

A lot of the reasons I can’t do things aren’t real reasons.  They’re just excuses.

I need to stop making them.
