Self Employment because there’s no other option

It’s hard to get hired as a blacksmith. When I came back from Europe, I didn’t quite have the skills to be useful to someone else (they wouldn’t have paid enough for me to get by anyway), but I didn’t want to lose everything I’d gained through travel by taking a ‘regular’ job. I’d been that route, and it didn’t make me happy. Plus, I had loans to pay. So, I started marketing my own work. It’s incredibly hard some days, but I wouldn’t give it up easily.

This adventure of mine is profiled in an article “Entrepreneurship as a last resort” on Slate.com. Check it out!
