Six Months Off

28 October 2006

I’m now officially on a six-month sabbatical, during which I’m going to try and grow my software business, Axe Software. I also think it would be interesting to take up blogging properly so I’ll be talking about my progress, maybe a bit on this blog but more officially on the Axe Software blog which I’ve just set up.

If it works out I’ll be able to follow the dream of being my own boss, keeping my own hours and doing exactly what I want to do. I’ll be able to pour more time into my other interests, writing comedy and music (for which I’ve just set up a MySpace page, thereby missing the bandwagon by perhaps 12 months).

If it doesn’t work out, I’ll end up in quite a lot of debt, but at least I can go back to a normal day job and hopefully have an increased level of sales over the following months and years, which should repay it.

And if it doesn’t? Well, I won’t know unless I have a go. And it’s got to be more fun than working for somebody else for six months.
