Happy Independence (Indie) Day!

Happy fourth of July to everyone! As we celebrate our country's Independence, I can't help but to think about the freedom of being an Indie. Let's take a look at what it means to be an Indie.

Indie initially comes from the word Independent. Indie has several meanings. The first, -an independently owned business or self-employed; (of a business) privately owned. Another meaning is -An artistic work produced by an independent company or group. One article says "Just be yourself. That's true Indie".

I have to say I love being an indie. Having a say so in my business, staying home and working in my "grubbies", coming and going as I please, and spending more time with family, are just some of the reasons I made the switch from corporate to the entrepreneur life.

So fellow Indies, let's take the time today to rejoice in our Independence.
