Yes Sep 10, 2010

I know it did, but can't remember by how much. So I picked the 'can't remember' option!

I suppose so Sep 10, 2010

But I can't remember that far back (some 30 years ago)...

What I do remember... Sep 11, 2010

While I can't remember whether the second year was an improvement, I do remember that what emboldened me to take early retirement was a fat contract that took up most of my time during the first year and second years (picking up other clients along the way). I billed for progress payments and delivered the final chunk exactly 23 months later - on my way to the airport to move to California!

The real test came in the third year, and I remember that by that time I had garnered a nice lineup of clients. I was very blessed!
