Flying somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, I wondered if I was making the right decision.
I had just spent two weeks away from my business on my honeymoon, and the net result of my thoughts led me to believe that selling my web design business was the best chance I had at making a difference in the world.
Before co-founding FreshBooks, I ran a small design agency. I felt like I was on a treadmill, billing by the hour, and not earning as much as I thought I was worth.
So I rethought everything.
The result was powerful: In 2004, I only worked 19 days, and made over $200,000.
