    Well said Erik!

    I pitch my girlfriend these principles constantly!
    She works at a prestigious West Coast University and is considering starting her own accounting business. I thing she has incredible equity in her association with the school’s reputation and its surrounding up-scale clientele.

    As you say, the key is to realize this and leverage your position there.
    I’m sending her your article now!

    Keep-up the good work!

    • Erik Folgate

      I hope she follows her dream of owning her own accounting firm!

    Thank you Suzanne. I don’t have a day job for someone else but I am self-employed and running a second business on the side. I can tell you how stressful that is. On the plus side, I have a lot of flexibility when it comes to managing my own time. However, I am naturally preoccupied with a million ideas and not the best at organizing. It’s really a challenge getting all my ducks in a row and managing a schedule on a day-to-day basis. I feel for the people who have the demands of a full-time job as well!

    Suzanne you did quite a job here. Most bloggers would have made this into about 6 different posts just to get “credit.” You are really writing for the sake of your readers, and we appreciate that. That is what keeps people coming back. Thanks.

    Great list, thanks for sharing! And especially thank you for being realistic. Starting a business isn’t going to be easy. There will be challenges, and you’re right, say goodbye to those weekends! Fortunately, the reward eventually outweighs the sacrifices.

    Hello!!
    I know all of you reading this are looking for ways to stay at home. If your reason is wanting to stay home with your babies like mine was, you need to find something! We want to watch them grow, experience their firsts and even experience the mishaps that we will laugh about years down the road. I have been working from home for some time now with a wellness company. At first when I was introduced, I was just excited about switching to a better store. Eventually, I realized that this was also a perfect fit for for me professionally. I would love the opportunity to show you what I do and help you achieve your goals.
    If you would like more information or even if you just want to chat, please feel free to shoot me an email at [email protected].
