I had been running my business for two and a half years when I knew I wanted out.
It took me another year to officially close my doors—but not for the reasons you might expect.
The thought of becoming an entrepreneur had never crossed my mind until I started blogging, a world that opened my eyes to a myriad of new possibilities for independent work. Through that world, I connected with thousands of people from around the world that were making a living on their own: developers, writers, editors, designers, editors, consultants, bootstrappers, and more.
The independence and flexibility of working on my own terms was too sexy to pass up.
