Why I’ll take self-employment over employment any day

I started working from home in 2012.

At the time, most of my time and energy was spent writing blog posts for a music industry startup. The income was good for the work I was doing, but it wasn’t enough.

I had an offer to teach guitar at a music store once per week, so I decided to take it.
