We’re now into our second year of running Lyrical Host.
Lately risk has been in my mind a lot. On the business sites I visit, there’s one topic that comes up a lot.
“I want to start a business but I’m too scared to quit my job.”
It’s not too far off me celebrating a year of being self-employed (yay)! Honestly? I still absolutely love it. The sense of freedom I still feel is unreal, and I’m grateful for that every. single. day.
As time goes on I get more relaxed about working. Rather than trying to stick to rigid core hours, I’ll have a nap in the middle of the day. Or go and see Avengers at midday. Or sunbathe.
I don’t think anyone would ever ask me if I regretted making the move to self-employment, because I’ve spent so long going on about how much I love it and how the excuses I’d made and downsides I’d envisaged just haven’t materialised (although I would like more time please. That’d be really nice).
However, one question people have asked me is: “Do you wish you’d done it sooner?”
