Other than when I gig, the majority of my work is done at home. I create new backing tracks for my duo, we rehearse the duo, plus my wife and I write new style e-disks and e-fake disks at home. I take care of the http://www.nortonmusic.com
business from orders to tech help to webmaster to bookkeeping to marketing, to whatever is needed.
The commute is quick and easy, other employees don't steal my food out of the fridge, I don't have to go out to buy lunches or brown-bag it, I can set my own hours, I can choose the background music when I'm directly doing music, when things are delivered to my home I don't have to worry about porch pirates, I can work in shorts and a t-shirt or sweats depending on the weather and don't even have to put shoes on.
I don't have a boss looming over me telling me what to do. I make my own decisions, profit from the good ones, and hopefully learn from the bad ones. I can break when I want and even take a day off if I want, although I usually work a lot more than 40 hours a week (it doesn't seem like work most of the time).
I don't like Air Conditioning, grew up without it, and lately I've learned that clean air is actually healthier not to mention much better for the environment, I live on a half acre and out of the window both in and under my trees I'm visited by rabbits, snakes. lizards, many different species of birds, squirrels, butterflies, bees, gopher tortoises, and rarely seen raccoons, a bobcat or a fox.
I like it that way.
Working for myself, in my own way, on my own terms, I feel like I'm free.
