I’ve been self employed since 1996. Sometimes it has nothing to do with the job being oppressive and has everything to do with 9–5 hours being oppressive.

I was a single Mom, sick to death of telling my child no, Mommy can’t come to your play… no, Mommy can’t go on the field trip — I have to work.

Now I work on my schedule. If it’s +26 and I want to go to the beach for the afternoon, I can. If it’s raining Sunday and I want to catch up on work, I can.

For me, it was never about hating business culture, but about the freedom to work a flexible schedule.

You know — so I can comment on Medium posts I like at any random time of the day. Apparently. lol.
