There is an entrepreneurial streak that runs through me and my mind often wonders where I will end up. It's part of the reason I started this blog and have committed to various other projects. I often think about what it's like to venture on my own into some new field and the amazing part of life is where those decisions will take you.
But working for someone else has its advantages. I get to to take two full weeks off to be home and don't have to worry about a paycheck not coming in. I've been working hard for the last few weeks making sure my work is caught up, but I still have co-workers ready to pick up the cases I could not address. Heck, even my health insurance is fantastic and a major advantage of my job.
It's part of the reason the posts have been infrequent the last few weeks. I've been working long hours at work and at home getting ready so that I can devote two full weeks to my most important job, being a father.
If I were working for myself, I would probably have to work a little bit every day. When solo attorneys don't work, they don't get paid. When they don't answer their phones, clients move on to someone else. So there are trade-offs in every field, but today I'm happy I've taken this road.
