Smart plan, take it from me, I've had my own business for 8 years, starting with a promise that I would make $60,000 a year, that was a big number for someone who only made $25,000 a year and $20 an hour, 2005 the promise happened and I cleared $60,000 after taxes, everyone seems to think that being your own boss will put money in your pocket, WRONG. End of 2005 I only had $1200. I looked at the year end financial reports I had from my accountant and wondered where did the other $58,800 go? Pissed away on my own business.
Go to work for someone else and never rely on a "promise" to make more money if you go at it alone.
