It's 5PM and I have to admit that I still have not shaved yet.

Hi. This is Tom Koster. Today is Friday, October 12th, and I want to talk to you about something that I feel is maybe unfair to other people, and that's the fact that a lot of times, just like today, I got out of bed, go to my office that I have in my home, I started working, relax a little bit, work some more, have contact with my clients, have my intern come into the office, do some work, and at this moment, it's almost 5:00 PM, and I have to admit that I haven't shaved yet, and, oftentimes, I take a shower in the morning, and I haven't showered yet. I did put on my pants and my socks, but I didn't put on my shoes. I'm wearing my slippers, and I'm still wearing my shirt that I put on this morning at 7:45 when I got out of bed.

I feel it's a little bit unfair to other people who have jobs and work for employers, which I did in the past. From the late '80s to the early '90s, I worked for an employer, and I had to show up on time, I had to leave on time, and my employer decided what to pay me, and, finally, I got laid off and I got fired, and, basically, I had it with working for an employer, and I never have worked for an employer since early 1995, and now it's 2018. Since that time, I'm working for myself, working for my clients basically, and doing more and more work from home.

I'm going to take a shower in a couple of moments. Then I'll have some dinner and then visit some clients and help them with their promotion, and with one client, I'm helping them with presenting a new menu that they have for autumn of 2018, and another client I'm helping with finding new employees. I love what I do. I love my work. It give me a lot of freedom, and the work I do, I can bill the hours that I work to my clients. It may be a little bit unfair to the position that I had previously, and it may be a little bit unfair to all these people who got up in the morning and drive to their work for an employer, stay in traffic, get home late, don't see their kids, don't see the wife, but there's a solution.

There's another way of working, just like I am working from my home. You can do maybe the same thing, and if you're open to that, maybe we can have chats, and I can show you what I do and how I make my income and how I grew my income, and may be something for you, too, to take a look if you can replace the income you now have with another income and being your own boss and helping local business owners with digital marketing, with social media, and with web. If you're open to that, just shoot me an email, and give me a call, and maybe we can talk, and if you're not open to that, that's fine, too.

With this, I end this session. I want to wish you a good evening. Have a nice weekend. Talk to you soon. Bye-bye.
