The Good, The Bad and the Reality of Being Your Own Boss

When I first started my design business I honestly had no clue what I was doing. Don’t get me wrong — I had gone to school for the skills I needed to qualify as a graphic designer. I just had no idea what it actually meant to work for myself and run a business. When I thought about being my own boss, all I could image were the perks. Yet when I started running my business, I began to see the costs of being the boss. Ultimately, experience has taught me there are three sides to being self-employed:  the good perks, the bad costs and ultimately real life.
