Every night from May to Labor Day, crackles, booms and pops echo across the lake as fireworks light up the summer sky above my temporary home.
Because I’ve been self-employed for over three decades, I probably take my freedom more for granted than many of my clients and friends who are corporate refugees, so I’m grateful for this nightly reminder to celebrate independence.
And speaking of celebrating Independence and “bosslessness”, I want to invite you to join me for a celebration of self-employment. My friends Sandy Dempsey and Alice Barry have gathered together a POSSE to plan the Joyfully Jobless Jamborree. Sandy initially came up with this idea to honor our friend and mentor Barbara Winter, author of best selling “Making a Living without a Job”. The theme of the event is “more time, more fun, more money”. Unlike the typical “pitch-fest” events, this is all about celebration, lifelong learning and the joy of being jobless. I hope to see you there. Read more about the Joyfully Jobless Jamborree here.
