I've talked recently with a friend of mine, who is making the transition from "job" to "home office business owner." After about six months in business, he's having his frustrations. He had a brief flurry of work, which were the results of his intense marketing efforts. Then he finished the work, sent the invoices, and now he's waiting for the checks to arrive. But one thing he's not doing, is sitting around waiting for the phone to ring.
Instead, he's putting his nose to the grindstone, and cranking up those same marketing efforts that brought in his first round of work. With a little hard effort and belt-tightening, he's convinced he's going to make it through. I'll let you know how he's doing.
