I am a strong believer in speaking with a therapist as often as needed to ensure your mental health is nurtured. Having a clear mind will allow you to grow professionally.

There are multiple health insurance options out there for the self-employed. It may take some digging to find an option that meets your current health care needs. However, it’s well worth the effort. When I began transitioning into a full-time entrepreneur I spent a few months filtering through hundreds of insurance options for business owners. I hope my personal research may be of assistance to other self-starters who are in the market for medical coverage.
