Default What is success?

What is success?
This is a very important question.

When I was running my own IT business in the mid 90s success was having a BMW, a nice office away from home and having a few staff.

Today my aims have changed.

My wife now has a good income as a registered nurse (earning more than me) and I am looking at having a more life balance situation....

Thinking about getting back into the "Self Employed" situation again..... (as I think I am getting too old to be taking orders and putting up with corporate bullshit)

Success to me now is - having time to do the things I want.
I need to be able to pick up my kids from school, complete a bachelors degree part time and also fit in some paid computer repairs.

I think earning $20,000 - $30,000 part time whilst having the flexibility to do the above it success. Obviously I am prepared to work when there is work....

This forum has been excellent for me. I have overcome my fear of the $10- pizza tech. I am going to charge $40- an hour. This is based on my experience and knowledge.

I do not EVER want employees! I only ever want to run my business from my home office.

What is success to you?
