Blogging - A Full Time Job

by Zyon | 7/05/2011 01:11:00 PM in |

Before I started blogging as my full time job, I thought it would be a good idea to clear up some debt I had--more specifically, credit card debt. I applied for one of those quick loans and was approved. Once the debt was out of the way, I then had to sit down with Lisa and go over, in specific, the pros and cons of quitting my full time job to work from home as she does.

PROS:

  • make more money
  • both home = freedom to do more family things and spend time with kids
  • control of our finances, the harder we work, the more we make.
  • making more money now means paying off debt such as car, motorcycle, Disney vacation home
  • we can both spend time together to grow L&C Freelancing
  • I will leave his current job on good terms so I can always go back to that job if things fail working from home. I would be starting at less money but at least I would have a job -- so long as that company is around
CONS:
  • fear of lack of stability
  • freelance companies suddenly go under--w/o warning? (Companies sometimes do that too though)
  • need to be sure money lost from quitting job is recovered and then extra made to cover health insurance
It has been almost two years and we are both still working from home and making a decent income. I think I made the right decision.
