Preface this by saying I am NOT trying to sell you anything. i just want to let you know about a celebration you would love. If you are already self employed, you'll meet other joyfully jobless peeps here.
If you are considering a career change, I would recommend seriously considering self-employment because it allows you to be a life-long learner, continuously "go back to school" by doing workshops, seminars and other short term classes. When you are bored or just feel that you want to use more of your talents or interests, you can tweak your business to fit those needs. This is much more practical and fulfilling than spending a couple of years in school, competing with 25 year olds to land a job when you finish. And, you can change it to always keep it stimulating. You don't need a business degree or even a lot of capital or formal business plan to be your own boss and love what you do every day. There really is a way to make a living out of almost any interest or hobby. A great place to start is by mingling with other "joyfully jobless people". I am planning to be at the Joyfully Jobless Jamboree in Austin, Oct 15-16. I can't think of a better way to begin to explore the joy of self employment. (oh, and by the way, this will ABSOLUTELY NOT be a pitch-fest. It is a celebration of self employment, honoring author Barbara Winter of "Making a Living without a Job" . Check out her book and the event for stimulating ideas.
