I need my freedom to do what I want more than I need money at this point in my life.

Getting up on monday morning and not hating your job,not having to kiss no1's ass is what it is all about the money we all want to pull big cash down no i enjoy my job, hindsight i would have done this out of highschool.

Even more, if you love what ya doin', which makes life easier, money isn't even the issue........

With me it's about the money but I make time for the family. Several years ago I did the work from sun up to sun down 7 days a week. No time with the family. I changed that, it was killing me and the family.

I like the freedom but for 20 grand extra.....I would close up shop today
No way, do you realize that having your own business you have the option to make as much as you want within reason.

If im doing 40k a year now, and I want ot make 20k more, I just BEEF UP the marketing strategy. Thats the way I look at it, plus 20,000 isn't THAT much, to give up somthing you have put so much blood sweat and tears into, and invested 3 times that amount of $$$ into.

Just my opinion maybe you don't like seeing your name on somthing and wearing your own shirt everyday.
