I have a few questions for everyone. I'm 28yrs. and I've spent the last 9yrs. in the Coast Guard. If I want, I can get out at my 10yr. mark and I've been thinking about getting into the Green Industry. My only problem is that I have 3 children, a wife and make about $35,000 a year. I only have 11yrs before I can retire but I feel I need to do something else with my life. Is it possible if I were going solo I could make the same amount of $ that I make right now my first full time year? Right now I work 7:15am to 2:30pm m-f. I would have a year to work part time and establish business. My wife is very supportive but I worry about the livelyhood of my family. I'm not in it to get rich, I just want to work for myself. Any advice good or bad would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
