Last night, I touched on the fact that I won’t be accepting any new consulting clients. The fact of the matter is, when I work as a consultant for other people, I am still am employee. Although the business is mine, I work from home, and I can set my hours - I am still a slave to deadlines and the whim of my clients.

Remember that old saying “in order for things to change, you must change“? Because I want to start establishing true financial and personal freedom, things need to change in my current life and way of operating. Basically, I’m changing.

As of yesterday, I stopped accepting new clients and will not be until June 1, 2005. I will continue to work with past and current clients while still being selective within that pool.

My consultancy has definitely blossomed, enough so that I am literally turning clients away. It feels wonderful to be able to pick and choose who I will work with, but recently, I’ve been so busy I don’t have much time to work on my own projects - the projects which will allow me to enjoy true financial and emotional freedom.

I have saved enough money to allow myself to pay my bills while having a little extra padding for incidentals. I will establish at least 5 passive income websites by my June 1 deadline. The websites don’t need to be huge cash cows overnight, but I want them to establish a foothold in their respective niches.

By this time next year, I will be taking new clients only because I want to, not because I have to.
