Great post over here by Dan about his early stage reflection on the pros and cons of the change to self employment.

It is a recommended read for anyone considering the shift from being an employee – too often we either see all the benefits or all of the pitfalls. It’s great to see both sides clearly articulated by someone who is actually doing it.

His experiences mirrors mine when I made the shift 10 or so years ago from a very insulated (but pretty unhappy) employee to a fully exposed (but feeling very empowered) business person.

My journey since then has been fantastic and it would not, and could not have occurred without the initial leap of faith – well done Dan.
