My First Month of Self-employment

September is over and so is my first month of self-employment. It was a month of transition. I returned from three months of traveling (Europe and China), spent a week in Boston, settled back into my apartment, and then moved at the end of the month to a new apartment. Needless to say there have been a lot of distractions. Nevertheless, by the numbers I did well. Through consulting work I made 85% of my previous salary while working about 1/3 the number of hours. Just as all investments ads warn that “past performance is not a guarantee of future results,” I too must warn that almost all revenue came through a single job. Although I expect to do many more hours on the job, one of my goals for the next month is to diversify (multiply really) my sources of revenue.
