The business I have been doing on the side is going to turn into the main event for me, although I am not sure that I am ready. It is something I have been preparing for since my boss retired. We dreaded what he would do and when he put his son in charge the smart people in the office began preparing for what we would do after we left the jobs we had. I expedited the matter by standing up to him when he was bullying a lady who merely told him the truth. I already had serviced office space ready though and I moved into the new place this morning. It is bigger than a cubicle, but that is about it. It is big enough for what I am doing and it seems like I am going to have to think about partners before long. There are a couple of guys in the office who knew about this all along and they were sort of on the fence.
Of course I am pretty sure that Jake just wanted to be sure that I was serious and not just blowing smoke. He is a cautious man and this involves a great amount of risk. I am a single person and so if I take risks the implications only impact my situation and I can learn to live on a pretty meager income while things are tight. Jake has a wife and a two year old girl to think about, so if he takes a big chance and it goes South on him, things go South for the two of them also. It was lucky for me that I did not have to fret about stuff like that. I just figured that I had a pretty simple choice to make.
