Community or Loneliness?

One of the biggest issues that people can face when they start working for themselves is loneliness. Having the choice to not have to work with the people we don’t like or respect may seem like a positive reason to strike out on our own but the loneliness can still influence us. For me, the time that this hits home is Christmas. When I worked in corporate we had hundreds of people at our Christmas party or dozens out for a cruise on Sydney Harbour (just had to drop that in there!!). Taking myself out for Christmas lunch and telling cracker jokes to myself just does not have the same appeal.
