It's a trade off really. As an employee of some one else's business, I was very limited to what I could make in the span of two days. But I got to keep ALL of it and do whatever I wanted with it (spend, save, etc.). As a business, my revenue is unlimited. But if I want to keep growing the business, I have to put it back into the business rather than keep it for myself.
I'm not complaining. Just reflecting on the irony. Or would it be considered still "complaining" if I talked about what a bad-ass sexy outfit I wish I could buy for Norwescon with that $1,000 (if I wasn't so darn responsible).
