This.

IMNSHO, if you love to code and want to code for a living, go work for somebody else. If you don't mind spending the majority of your time doing things other than coding (because don't kid yourself, this is what you're going to end up doing), then go ahead and be self-employed.

Personally I've always worked for others for this very reason.
