I’ve had the dream of starting my own business for a while now; not the VC funded Silicon Valley kind, but what I’ve come to learn recently is considered a “lifestyle” business. What I’m after is the same thing many developers looking for sources of passive income want, which is freedom. Some people enjoy and thrive off the stability and predictability of salaried employment, but for all the time I’ve been doing it, I’ve never felt satisfied. I thrive off risk, stress, uncertainty. I’m more than willing to throw myself into difficult situations and test my limits. That’s why the life of an entrepreneur is appealing to me.
