Two options offered here. Your decision as to which one is for you. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, just like everything in life. If you want to get where you want to go as quickly as possible, with no thought for anybody or anything else, then best not to feel hampered by too much “baggage” which may hold you back or slow you down. However, when you get “there” you might be disappointed there is nobody there to applaud your efforts or offer a welcome. If, however, if you want to go a bit further, then perhaps some company to offer support and encouragement would be a good plan. There would also be the added benefit of two heads being better than one, and someone to acknowledge your achievement and success. Which one would you opt for?
