having a business can be rewarding but there are so many hidden costs and so much hidden labor it's a huge risk even before taking into account a flighty clientbase.

You also have to be salesperson, dev, accountant, PR point and somehow find time for all that while doing QA as well.

Or you can hire, which means regulations, SS payouts, etc.

Subcontracting is a bit easier in that case.

But I don't know. If you've been doing it for awhile and have the inertia then maybe run with it. The sky is the limit, unlike working for someone else.

On the other hand, a little security is nice. And not having to manage all the details.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
