If you are really looking to get out, you could work a deal with the boss to give up some of your salary each year to guarantee raises for “junior” to keep them around.

Start them at 30, with a guaranteed 5k raise each year for the next x years as you stop working Fridays, then Mondays, then…

If you find another job and decide to leave your boss will have added flexibility to retain the new hire.
