  • Being happy with what your doing is important.

  • Yes, why would you NOT want to succed?

  • I agree with both of you...I would do my best to be successful, especially given the factors...
    I also agree being happy is important but working 20 hours a week, to make a FT income and having the remainder of you life to have a life...especially with the family FOR ME outweighs any Job or Business. Does that make sense?

  • what exactly are you asking? It seems to me that this belongs in the "would you rather" category, as you don't seem to be seeking advice.

  • I would hope if someone didn't want to take a business that they wouldn't, and if they do take it, they chose to be successful at it. We started our business from scratch and nothing has been handed to us.

  • I'm with rkoloms, ya lost me!

  • Maybe. There's no way I am going to put my heart and soul into something unless it is my passion. Even if everything is handed to me- if I am not head over heals for it, I'm not going to put very much energy or creativity into it.
