I totally hear you. Those are reasons I do want to do it. Along with getting away from this slipseater nonsense.Here we go with extremes again, lol.
Profiting, if you count my salary in it, was well over $1.00 last year. It’s close this year.
For me, though, it goes far beyond money.
I could do decent with a local job, but may as well be OTR for the way it restricts my life. I could be maki good money with Wal-Mart right now and home for my 34 every week, blah blah blah.
Neither works for me because if I want to take a week off for something family related, I do it. 3 days after that, if something else is going on that I want another 2-3 days off for, I do it. That said, it requires me to work hard when I am actually working. I just never want to answer to anyone else again outside of my family, those I have to pay bills to, and the IRS.
But considering money alone at this point it's a tough sell. If that makes sense.
I'm not trying to be extreme. Lol.
I'll be more inclined to give it a shot once some of these toys are paid off. If all I have left is my mortgage debt-wise then I'll have a lot more leeway for stuff to go wrong/bad/slow/kablooey.
I'm not a company man. I wasn't wired that way. So I'm very likely destined to do it, but it needs to be at a better time.
IOW I shouldn't have bought all this stuff. 😂
