Having so many options for the rest of my life is the best feeling I’ve ever had. I’ve been working on getting my website up and running via smallbusiness.xo and it’s been a real game changer for me. I actually sort of just fell into owning my own business because I had a really hard time finding a job out of college last year. With all of my education though, I knew I had the ability to get work as a consultant, so I started my own website and I've actually been having more clients contact me than I would've thought. I think a lot of people like to just hire me for contract work rather than put someone on staff full-time and it's no different to me except that I have to buy my own health insurancebut I also get a ton of flexibility I wouldn't have if I was a full-time employee. I actually really like working for myself and will probably keep this up as long as the market can support me.
