I am in a lovely position of working as often and as hard as I want to. I will be working from a van, on the road, starting in January, so my biggest problem will be finding internet while on the road, but that is hardly a problem. :) Great advice!

Bill, you are so fortunate. I love the idea of being able to work anywhere. All we need is an internet connection and the world is our workplace. Luckily for us it is not too difficult to find internet and sometimes we can manage by turning our cell phones into a "hot spot." Life is great! And, Bill, thank you for your very kind compliment. It means a lot to me.
