How many members are self employed vs. working for a paycheck..
This should be interesting....
I am self employed........... Network Security Consulting mostly for Banks in the 4 state area here in Minnesota... don't ya know.......
I worked a start up... 370,000 shares.. valued at $1.25 ea during the "Angel investment rounds..
sold most of it before the bubble bust... and lost 125,000 to bankruptcy by the company..
Problem.. i didn't have enought stock to controll a board seat..
Now i own 1/2 of everything..
Life couldn't be any better..
And yes i worked all my younger life punching a clock...... from age 13-37....

I would love to have my own business....I just don't know what I would want to do. I have lots of things as hobbies that I do in my spare time. I wouldn't want to mess up the enjoyment of those hobbies....but I really don't think that I could make money at those hobbies either. What do you do?

I have worked for years in sales. For five of those years I was a GM for a large mobile home company.I worked from 8 to 8, six days a week. My company filed BK and told me I had to move or get another job. I decided to open my own buisnes(mobile home lot). Now my life is perfect. I work about 35 hrs a week and make a pretty hefty amount of money. Hell I just paid the IRS 47k. BASTARDS BASTARDS BASTARDS.
