b&b158 How to quit your job and go to full time freelance, Part 1

It’s becoming easier than ever to start your own business and work for yourself. About 1 in 3 Americans is currently a freelancer or a small business owner. By 2020, the number of freelancers is estimated to grow to 40%! But the idea of giving up a steady paycheck, retirement benefits, and health insurance can be daunting.
