Day 1: Self-Employed At Last!

Dana Sheehan/ Entrepreneur

Last Thursday I left my place of employment as a full-time employee for the last time. I admit, it was bitter sweet. There are so many things I loved about working there, but most of all was the people. While there are many things that I will miss, I know that striking out on my own is the right thing for me to do right now. And so, my next adventure begins!

On Friday I enjoyed my first day being self-employed. Here is my day, as captured on Instagram.

Day 1: first morning self-employed. Doing the school run with the kids. So far, the same as usual! #entrepreneurlife #selfemployed #momlife

There you have it! I am still getting into the mindset of working on my own schedule – and sticking to a schedule! Right now it feels more like I’m on vacation. I even find myself thinking about needing to go into work (for my former employer) the next day, or what I need to get done for my former employer this week – then I remember I don’t work there anymore!

I also have to work around my kids’ schedules, and they’re still in school. Very soon I’ll have them home with me all day, so there will be some more adjustment when that happens. So far, I am loving the flexibility I have, even with some of the mom-duties I have to work around.

Until next time,

Dana
