You can live outside the box
You don't have the restraints of standard work hours. If you want to work at night and play during the day, you can! You don't have to worry about your reputation at the office. Want to attend pool parties all summer? Do it! Want to visit Trekkie conventions throughout the nation? Nothing is stopping you. No need to worry about asking for time off. You set your hours and your schedule. Are you convinced that you should set your own hours and salary doing what you love? Are you ready to break off that employer ball and chain?
