If you are looking to work less than 40hrs punching the clock like you do now, I highly doubt you would be successful starting your own business.Some more background. I am really unhappy where I am. I have no energy because it's a manufacturing job and I sit in front of a machine all day and press buttons. When I used to have an active job that energy carried over after work, now when I am done I just want to go home and sit. I don't want a lot of money, I want time. I want time to spend with people, family, pets, I want the flexibility to be able to take off and go for a hike in the woods if I want. If I can make more money later I would be grateful, but for now I would just like to be able to make enough to have some freedom with my time.
You would work more hours, but might be able to work odd hours to make more time during the day for other things.
Having a lot of free time as a sole proprietor is a bad deal because it means you are not making money.
Do you have any idea of what it is you would like to do if you did start your own business?
