Love this post! Being a father of two toddlers I can relate! I got laid off back in 2012 from Motorola/ Google and had two years of consulting and every Friday off. It was the best decision instead of going back into the full time employee life. Now in 2015, I’m back working for the “man”. I’m definitely more productive now and go home at a decent hour. However, the reality: it is a job, pays the bills, love what I do and seeing my clients success is what I thrive upon.
