Your not alone in being a loner or being misunderstood. Your in good company! I'm also contemplating self-employment but I'm a little overwhelmed by the logistics. The important thing is not to give-up because, if your persistent, eventually everything will fall into place. I've sold things on eBay but there isn't enough cash flow to make a living from it. You should check out sba.org for info on starting your own business.
