Challenge of the 1st Year

The vast majority of those who take the bold step out of employment will find their first year a challenge.  Part of it issue is financial pressure, but an even larger problem is the process of having to redefine everything:  your role, your day, your priorities, your professional persona – even your role at home.

Ali Mese has written a fantastic account of his first year as a solopreneur and the transition he went through before making it through to the other side.  I encourage you to read it, reflect and have a little empathy for those who are still in the midst of it.
