: "Don’t believe the motivational clickbait about making it as a self-employed person. Experts encourage people to have set hours, to incorporate, and to function, essentially, as a business. That’s not how I operate. If I worked like that, I would have quit my job years ago. Why work at home, I figure, if you have to get ready for work? I often sit at my desk in my pajamas until long after lunchtime. When it’s hot out, I sit in only a pair or shorts, or sometimes a bathing suit. No one cares. Other than my wife and son and maybe the mailman, no one has to look at me."
