i always assumed it was doing what you used to do for 50 hours a week and then spending an extra 30 hours a week doing all the stuff your old company employed whole departments to deal with, accounting, payroll, legal, tax etc etc etc
as much as i love the idea of working for myself, i hate the idea of dealing with all that stuff which i have no exeperience or interest in.
