Excellent ideas on how to quit your job to work for yourself! I personally blog and freelance occasionally, plus work my normal job, but I actually love working with horses and so while the pay is crap, I doubt I’ll ever quit totally. Because of the pay is why I started blogging and I definitely recommend it! You can do and write about anything! It’s exciting! Thanks for the other ideas as well.
