Well, it’s awesome. I control my hours, I have time for my family, and I have a one-on-one relationship with each of my clients. Having a hard-working, supportive wife makes all the difference in the world.
However, it also means that I sometimes keep odd hours, even at odd places. For instance, today is New Year’s Eve. I am in a hospital room with my lovely wife and our newborn son. They are asleep, and I am working on my laptop on a bankruptcy petition for some clients who are in a real bind. I don’t mind, and careful planning and a very understanding wife make the solo practice/family lifestyle possible.
Have a Happy New Year. I know that I will.
