It's a strong possibility! Seems that lately, I've been thinking a lot about it, and a lot of people I've talked to say I have enough talent to do it. Now all I need is the ballz. Going off on my own will be scary, after all, it's not like a job you can go to and slack off in, and still get paid. Being the master of my own destiny will require time, patience, and a relentlessness to succeed. And I've come to realize, it will most likely only end up being 30% actual graphic design, while the rest will be spent on accounting, keeping track of finances/expenses, going out and knocking on doors, and endless meetings with clients. This is where I'm a bit concerned. I feel that I can handle the graphic design part of it just fine, but it's the other stuff that I don't know too much about, and will have to learn on the fly. First question I have for people here, is I've come up with two names that I like for my new company. These are: 1) Digital Dimensions 2) Serephim Studios The first I've sort of had in mind for my company for years. I've already got the logo for it, so it would be easy to print it on business cards, etc. The second is a more recent name that I've allowed to churn in my brain for the past year or so. I've always been fascinated with angels, demons, and the supernatural side to those biblical stories I've read as a kid. I'm sort of leaning towards the first, but there is a problem with both. Quite a few companies have already taken the names. Some of them are software companies, some are photography companies, but as far as I know, none of them are in the same city that I am in. Type in something like "Acme" in Google, and a zillion hits come up. Is it kosher to name a company that's already been named, or am I asking to get my ass sued? Also, another problem with the Serephim Studios name - there is not actually a studio. I'm just a dude working out of my house. I guess for marketing purposes, it's alright, but just wanted to make sure. After I get my business cards and letterheads done, I'm going to go down to the government offices and get a business permit. Then learn how to do invoicing and accounting. Then make up a rate sheet for my services. Then go knocking on doors and asking them if they will pay me to do a website for them. Hopefully, a lot of them will say yes. And hopefully, I won't have to have sex with wrinkled old businesswomen in order for them to do that. There is much to learn for me. But with time, patience, and hard work, I hope to one day be able to work from home entirely. That would be cool, because I would be able to spend time with future kids and wife, etc. and she won't complain about me being at work all the time and only getting 2 weeks of vacation a year.
