Inspiration

Steve Pavlina provides some compelling reasons for remaining unemployed- Mom, pretend I said "freelance."

We're seeing more and more strange and wonderful situations due to the non-physicality of the net- Successful virtual businesses in Second Life; the Long Tail for retail; individual people forming communities based on ideas and interests rather than geophysical space.

Everyone else is doing it, why can't I?

That linked article is funny to read, but owning your own business takes more than just 40 hours a week. Selling something of value means you are a salesman all the time.

Don't get me wrong, I'd prefer to own my own business so that idiots aren't making decisions that directly affect my income. Still, I thoroughly enjoy the ability to leave work at the end of the day and not bring it home with me.

I have a serious beef with Steve on this topic. He's got a good point to make, but the way he has presented it is dead wrong. We can talk about it at the holiday party later today... or just another time! :-)
