First anniversary
« on: September 30, 2011, 04:12:30 pm »
A year ago this afternoon, I drove away from the place I'd worked for the previous 14 years and became self employed!  Broke but happy and far healthier, no regrets..

Good for you, congratulations.  :thumbsup:

I'm 4 and a half years into my escape to freedom and have never regretted it either. Here's to many more anniversaries for you.  :)

Congratulations! We're celebrating a year since we bought our place today. Got to go mow some space for the hog roast and bouncy castle!

And just think, if you hadn't done that you'd not have met all of us lovely folks of a like mind to yourself!  Many happy return Anniversaries!

Happy anniversary, many more to come.
I walked away from my job 11 years ago. They owners of the company I worked for were so mad at me that I was going that they would not even talk to me , that's after working for them for 16 years.
I've never looked back

Well done you.   We upped and left nearly 3 and a half years ago now.  Left well paid jobs, but threw it in to move to Glorious South West Wales and live our long wished for life, on a Smallholding.   Job done   :thumbsup:
Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again !!
