What would you do if you made an extra $50k per year and had Friday's off?

When I first went 1099, I took Fridays off.

I ran errands, took naps, and used my Saturday and Sunday as true days off. 

With the extra money I made going 1099, I paid off some loans, added to savings, went on some nicer vacations, and bought a nice engagement ring (spoiler alert: that worked out!).

Last year I was able to take a year off and enjoy spending time with my new daughter.

Now my family and I are thinking about where we want to be in the future and what our lives should look like.

While the 1099 work itself is still work and probably not a dream job, it does give you the the time, space, and resources to make the rest of your life work for you.
