Best of luck.
When I started out with Comport Computing, I had a similar desire to yours.
But, I ended up being the CEO and Janitor, too.
I left a 40 hour work week and ended up working 80 hours a week. I did have more fun and made more mon ey than before, but relaxing only made me lose business.
Then I ended up losing it all when I had a stroke.
Now I'm trying to figure out how to start over again.
Some people never learn, not even the hard way.
I'm still finishing a PHD and a business degree, too.
I could just retire, but I tried that fpor a few days and decided it was too boring!
