    So, I put my notice in yesterday!!!!

    Every week or so someone posts about doing the same thing and they say how exciting and a little bit scary it is. I’m feeling all of that as well :)

    I’m not quite solo, my wife and I run our business and it has grown now to equal my full time job income … and, the growth prospects are looking great.

    Can’t wait to wake up on the 11th of April and start working full time for myself!

    The FS community has been a great place to get ideas and network with like minded people. It really is an amazing community resource.

    I’ll send a link to my website in about a month – I couldn’t possibly link to it now after all of the advice I have given others about their websites ;)

    When it is updated I’ll send a link and ask for some feedback

    Nope, still slugging away … for another 17 days ;)

    I have been lucky that my wife has been running the business while I kept on working as an employee full time.
    It has allowed us to implement a number of financial plans that will have great outcomes in years to come … well, that’s the plan :)

    Congratulations and Good Luck Ray! I miss that feeling of telling your employer that you’re going solo.

    Congratulations of taking that step.

    I admit to being on of the jealous people watching from the ‘solo sidelines’. But will take that leap myself soon. Gotta fix a date for my departure.

    Good luck with yours. I am glad you thought about the $ of it all before jumping.

    I hope to read more of your journey as you move to the 100% solo/partnered world.

    Cheers, Fiona

    Gosh Ray

    So many people saying “congratulations” and “you’ll never regret it”…

    It sort of sounds like what the Christians said just before they walked into the Colosseum…

    So… when you wake up at 4.00am on those “early days” frequent mornings with the stark reality of what you have now done… feel free to give me a call… some of the best ideas can be hatched while everyone else is sleeping…

    … after clinching a big contract yesterday because I needed to get up at 4.00am yesterday morning to finish the proposal, I am sure that I can calm your nerves any time, if need be.
