I never realised how big a step it actually is to quit one's job and decide to work for yourself. I was fortunate enough to still be living with my parents when I started doing IM (Not a phrase often heard), so I had less bills to pay and a little more time to get my feet off the ground. It's a huge step, and I'm almost tempted to make a journey thread out of the little lady's progress, if that wasn't borderline invasion of privacy. In any case, she started today, I helped her get a domain and hosting set up for herself, as well as a few other necessities, she contacted some previous employers and connections and it looks like it's going to be a busy but productive month for us all. PS: Congrats on the upgrade Sherbert Hoover, the light blue suits you!
