Get Rich Slowly is a personal finance blog started in 2005 as a part-time venture, This month, the main writer of the blog, JD, quit his day job and will blog full time. It’s not a surprise — he’s been blogging about it for awhile.
After his first week, he mentions the anxieties he’s having, such as higher utility bills (<em>It’s fine for us to leave the thermostat set at 54 degrees when nobody’s home, but when I’m trying to write, that’s too cold.</em>), income worries, work schedule and worries over health insurance. Reading his concerns and how he has prepared for them is great advice for anyone considering a free-lance, consutant or similar self-employed job.
<blockquote>I’m excited to be pursuing my dreams, and I’m committed to making Get Rich Slowly a fantastic place to find personal finance information. I just need to make some mental adjustments to my new reality.</blockquote>
