Okay, I’m tired. Really, really tired. Undereye concealer is mandatory.
The new office digs are awesome. I can walk to court. Court is across the street. This is good.
I can’t construct a paragraph longer than nine words. Again…tired!
Whining aside, this is a good tired. This is a “I’m really busy” sort of tired. Being a sole practitioner, “really busy” is good.
Which brings me to an important announcement – this week marks my year anniversary as a solo practitioner. Do I like being my own boss? The answer pretty much fluctuates, but when all is said and done, the pros outweigh the cons.
- Financial worries. I only get paid if I’m my own rainmaker. No pay check.
- Finding time to do the administrative end of practice, like making bills and paying bills. Important stuff.
- There’s nowhere to pass the buck – it starts and ends with moi.
- I get to decide which cases I take.
- Sometimes I can take the afternoon off, just because.
- If I want to take a couple days off, I don’t have to ask permission. I just find a way to schedule the time off around deadlines.
- I get to decide which cases I take. (Yes, I know I already said that, but it’s a biggie.)
- No office politics.
- No interoffice meetings.
- No Court appearance = Instant Casual Day.
