Today is my first day of freedom. I've officially finished my day job and will be dedicating my time 100% to my own business. I'm very excited and you can expect to see a lot more of me around these parts.

To everyone's success,

Andy

        I thought it was because you used to snitch on the English Mob and
        was given immunity via their Witness Protection Program hahaha

        Anyways, Andy - congratulations and best wishes.

        Now that you can give your part time business a full time effort,
        you have the potential to grow exponentially over the coming
        months.

    Having been my own boss for over 40 years, let me give you a little piece of advice - be the worst boss you ever worked for! Nag yourself stupid, complain when you are not as effective as you should have been, develop that sixth sense that tells you when your boss is not pleased with you.

    Most of all - you have just become the place the buck stops - be sure you can handle it when it does.

    Working for yourself is great but it isn't a holiday and you should not think of it as one.

          I pretty much haven't had more than a weekend off since I started uni 8 years ago. I did contracting work during term time. I worked in full time development jobs every day of the "holidays". After finishing my finals I worked in the maths dept for 3 weeks before I started in my full time job. I had 1 week off 2 years later between that job and the next. And for the last two years I've worked stupidly long hours, frequently past midnight and often on the weekends.

          Sorry to disappoint anyone who likes the usual stories of overnight success but my story is one of insanely hard grind. But don't get me wrong ... totally worth it.

    All that having been said, I would, nor could ever work for someone else again in my lifetime.

        Well there's a reasonable amount of money coming in from my backlink search engine. And helped by the fact that I'm a very good poker player so that's a good fall back plan if income starts to drop off (bit nervous about only having the one income stream atm).

    Hey, good on you Andy. Remember, we don't want to see too much of you on here... as you'll need to spend more time with your head down building your online future! lol.

    I made the switch last year. I develop sites, ideas and spend my working hours online... and I love it. Although I do have another offline business with my brother which he runs, which enables me to spend time to build this 'online' business up. It's all fun and games though. Good luck!

    Great job for you, Never look back now and only keep going on expanding your business, set long term goals and really hold yourself accountable for your actions. Take charge and now really grab the bull by the horns.

    Now that your working 100% on your own for yourself, it may be somewhat distracting, keep yourself focused and never forget you are your business and your business depends on you.

    Great job mate I love hearing this kind of stuff!

    Also take some time for yourself.

    I've been on my own, for seven years and those are the two mistakes I made when going out on my own.

    Congrats! I was forced out of my "day" job about a month ago and it's been the best thing to ever happen to me and my family.

    I've spent a lot more time on line learning to IM, made a little ( by no means not enough to live off of yet---but it's coming) money, and loving being able to go to work in my PJs!

    Here's to our success!

    Good for you.

    I always say 'freedom is my religion' and practice it I do.

      Congratulations Andy and I wish you continued success

      BUT,

      someone has to do this and I will take take the bullet for my fellow warriors and ask the question everyone is reluctant to ask...

      Who the heck is John Inman and why does his name keep appearing in this thread?

      When Bev mentioned his name, I figured "Okay, Bev is a little off in left field and she sometimes says things I don't understand..." Heck, Bev is ALWAYS saying things I don't understand (she doesn't speak English you know)! But when OTHER people remember John Inman, well, that's a horse of a different color.

      So, who is he?

    Fantastic news Andy.

    My best advice is to treat your new business as a "real" job. i.e. get up in the morning as if leaving the house, breakfast and then down to work. It's really easy to sit down with a cup of coffee and a newspaper and before you know it it's 11 o'clock.

    John Inman played Mr Humphries in a sitcom called Are You Being Served? His catchphrase on the show was "I'm free" in a really camp voice.

    Way to go. I hope to be in your shoes someday. It must feel great to be free of the burden that having a job places on you.

    Great to here! If only more people--who may have lost their jobs involuntarily--had the entrepreneurial spirit we all share and take initiative not only for their own prosperity, but for the prosperity of our global economy and save our future kids from trillions upon trillions of dollars of debt and hyperinflation

    Congratulations Andy! I took that leap 8 years ago, and I've never once regretted it! Just remember, When you own your own business, you only have to work half a day. . . You can do anything you want with the other 12 Hours!

    Congratulations. This, IMO, is THE milestone to pass for an Internet Marketer. First sale is nice and all, but this is what we all work for. Hopefully I'll be there in a few months as well.

    My husband and I are both self employed and running our own business. We have experienced both failure and success, which we have learned lots from in each instance. Best of luck.
