Different, but the same
Last night, I sent my final contract for the day to a client at 10:48 PM -- not so different from working at the firm.
Except, of course, I also fit in my run in the AM, opened my business bank account, had lunch with E, and fit in a post-work run/walk with B -- definitely different from working at the firm.
I'm very much looking forward to a month from now when the majority of the start-up administrative stuff is complete and I can just focus on working for my clients and self-education when I'm *working.*
