Transitioning from Employed to Self-Employed

I have tendered my resignation, and starting June 2012, I will be self-employed. 

I used to think that this transition will be manageable as long as one has his self-employment plans settled. In fact, I have been toying with the idea of doing tuition full time instead of part time like the past few years. Tuition is a fun and enjoyable activity; I enjoy sharing my knowledge and interacting with students.

But it was not easy mentally. Apprehension was high. The thought of moving from a stable income to an unstable one was actually scary. Furthermore, I'm going to suffer a severe pay cut.

I kept asking myself, what am I planning to do with so much time freed up?
The thing is, if you do not plan your time, others will plan it for you. I can't really allow that.

I have some grand plans lined up. Hopefully it will succeed. At least my dividends can feed me comfortably at the moment while I mess around.

Just a friendly reminder.

The warrants for Saizen REIT expires on 1st June 2012. 

You may want to see how to exercise your warrants from this link:

At the moment, my average cost of 0.161 is in the red. Dividends of 0.0189 has been received so far. :(

What do I expect after 1st June 2012?
I'm pretty sure that Saizen will follow in the footsteps of AIMSAMPIREIT. There should be a share consolidation soon. 

I'm prepared for a 5 for 1 or 10 for 1 share consolidation. I'm expecting a 5 for 1.

Peace out.
