How close are you to making your move?

Thanks for asking.

At first, the answer to your question seemed easy, but then I realized that I am already making my move.

However, I think what you are probably asking is when am I going to quit my day-job. That will occur around June or July 2004.

So, right now I am developing my website (low priority), purchasing equipment and getting familiar with it (high priority), taking pictures of everyone and everything, getting clients (funny how everyone wants you to photograph them when it's free), and putting the business plan together.

I think by the time I hit the ground with no income stream from my day-job, I'll be ready in more ways than one.

My highest priority, to me, is getting a portfolio together. I have a plan for that, which may or may not work. If not, then I'll figure something out.

I am doing this, though. My family thinks I'm crazy. My friends, who I have told think I'm crazy. The only person who thinks I'm finally doing something worthwhile is my wife. And, she's the only person where an opinion would matter to me.
