The day to day experience of being your own boss (which is a bit of a lie in itself, the fact is that when you're self employed - every client is your boss) tends to fluctuate between two states: The shit, and just shit.

Regardless of intent, I firmly believe that what you do in life is what matters because the results of your actions cannot judge you, assess your methods or offer an opinion on either.
