My wife and I are on a little getaway to spend Easter with my in-laws in Scottsdale, AZ. It is a gorgeous area, and makes for a great temporary office.
One of the things I enjoy the most about entrepreneurship is the flexibility it allows. As long as I have my computer and the Internet, I can pick up and work anywhere. Purlem has provided me with a lifestyle business that allows me to do what I want, when I want.
However, there is a flip-side. Even though I have the flexibility, the computer is glued to my side. I’m still my only employee, and thus all responsibility is on my shoulders. If a client needs help, or God-forbid, something goes wrong, I need to have immediate access to my computer and the Internet. This requires me to lug my computer with me everywhere I go – dinner, beach, to the bar, and to make sure an Internet connection is close by.
It will be very nice when Purlem’s team begins to grow as it will allow me to disconnect. Maybe even take a vacation and leave the computer behind. (Ya right… who am I kidding?)
