Things Changed for Me when I Decided to Become My Own Boss

I was feeling absolutely frustrated with the company that I worked for. It wasn’t a very large company, so that meant that I had a lot of access to the owner of the company ever day. He was not a nice guy at all. He made things so stressful, and I actually dreaded showing up to work every day for the last week that I was there. I quit and hired an assistant soon after. I read up on sites like and sites that taught me how to do taxes for my own business and anything else I could think of. I wanted to make this work because I hoped that I would never have to work for someone else in the future again.

I am not really what you would call a natural leader. I just like to be happy, get along with others and do a good job. So, I also spent some time reading up on how to hire an employee and to make sure I delegate and stay in control of our professional relationship. It is actually quite interesting to learn about. I suddenly felt a sense of calm when I was reading to learn what I could. I ended up hiring my best friend. They say that you should never mix business and friendship, but we have been friends since we were in elementary school, and I knew that we would have no problems. She said she was willing to let me take the lead with everything since I am now the business owner.

Everything has been going good so far. I am feeling pretty lucky that we have the Internet now because when I have questions, I can just look online and learn so many things very quickly. My new little company is going quite well, and I am happier than I ever was at the place I worked at previously.
