With thanks and respect to my father, my company now has a small office at 2102 Business Center Drive in Irvine. I’ve spent the last few weeks launching the company. I spent Christmas break moving in the computers and the printer and the Ikea furniture. I even hired a part-time employee with a flurry of W-2s and I-9s to manage some accounts.
I was worried that I’d turn into a porn-surfing late-sleeping slug when self-employed, but it’s been just the opposite. I am happy to report that I work just as hard for myself as for The Man — twelve-hour days in many cases, and I don’t feel that I’ve worked that hard at the end of the day.
It’s an exciting time, and I’m glad to be alive so I can live it. I am physically tired, but I wake up every morning now excited to go into work.
