    Apprentice to someone who is running his own shop and needs an extra hand. Buy the business from him when he decides he wants to see his children often enough for them to remember his face.

    It's my 4th year freelancing now. What I did was:
    - make sure to have enough experience and education so you're sure to get contract jobs
    - if you have any plans that require massieve loans, such as a mortgage, be sure to get that while you are still permanently employed
    - save your days off so you can quit your job while you still have payed days off to find a contract
    - make sure to have a small financial buffer, just in case
    - quit your job
    - find a contract job
    - done!
