Had someone call me the other day, and ask me if I'd sell them some of my accounts? Not interested.

Yes,but they didn't want the whole biz.just pick, and choose. Also they seemed a little shady, just a gut feeling though. Tony

I'd probably go back to language school for a refresher and get back into translation work ... on a flexible schedule.

I tried the whole sell thing for 4 days, backed out of the deal. I see myself in this business for life

If the money was right I would surely sell. I would want enough to retire, otherwise I don't know that it would be worth it.

Nope. I wouldn't sell. This is only our second year and I'm still enjoying it. When I stop enjoying it, then maybe I'd sell. No idea what I'd do instead. Maybe go back to another previous career until I get tired of it again.

iwouldsell...without enough thought, probably. I guess it depends on what day you ask me on.
