I can assure you if you grow a "large" business the business will "OWN" you and you will be its slave.
I agree with this to a point. Solo guys have their pick of the gravy jobs after a few years. If there are other pursuits than solo is the way to go. For me, this is what I do, my wife knows this and so does everyone I know. I want to grow this business to a point where I am happy. When I get there I'll most likely realize I'm not happy and keep going. I don't run a large business but I still take time off and enjoy myself. If you ask any LCO owner with more than 20 employees I'm sure their day is a little better than the solo guy IMHO.
