If you want to and can afford to, go for it. When it comes time to explain the gap, be honest. You were unhappy with the work you were doing, you had been diligent in saving your money, and being in a position to step back and decide what you wanted to do, you took it. I wouldn’t hold that against an employee

Do it. You can always explain the gap in interviews.

What will you do about health insurance?

Can probably get on my partners or worst case COBRA

COBRA is great. Also try United’s new self-employed health insurance. It’s much more cost effective.

I am SO tired of reminding everyone on everything, saying the same thing a million times, and being on numerous accounts with minimal support.
