yes, several times, the list seems fairly even, that's what makes it more difficult. It seems to come down to happiness, freedom and flexibility. It must be hard for you not knowing the entire history and situation.yes. I'm entering reply, but it's not submitting.
There it goes, sorry...
Hello, I'm I doing something wrong?
ha, wish it were that easy, I guess I'm indecisive by nature and would probably end up 2nd guessing myself either way.
Most people say to give it a year, but I'm afraid I may forget what I was doing and lose my old clients. I have much less stress, but less money, less freedom
maybe I need to redo my list?
age almost 55, worry about real estate appraisal profession as a whole because of govt. regs, technology, liability and the job provides health. My 3 kids saw how much I stressed and worked being self employed, so they worry about my health. Thing is I was a good appraiser, had good clients and I had some good help, but they to saw my stress, now I would have to be on my own which is ok, I would just have to accept less work, make less money and find balance, I lost that being self employed.
yes, how long do I give it...should I let my boss know how I feel, he understands how hard it was for me to take it, so he has been very understanding, and has made comments about me going back to my practice, so I think he senses my indecisiveness and has already said how happy he has been that I've helped him start this new dept., he's a good guy, I respect him alot and would probably be able to keep them as a client, so I just assume to be honest.
Somehow I feel like I should be paying yu more for this time??
ha, it always comes back to relationships doesn't it...well, I've been stuck in a relationship for 12 years (at least I feel stuck) which hasn't helped with my indecisiveness. I used to be pretty confident about my decisions, but after divorce, getting severed from a job and open heart surgery..I've become more wishy washy and don't trust my heart, gut or instincts as much. We have been dating 12 years, so that's in limbo, now my job is in limbo, not a good place to be.
a date, I would probably know right away, in fact after I accepted it, I had this uneasy feeling I made the wrong decision, but I'd been telling myself and others for years, that if something steady came along I'd take it, finally it did, the pay is $65,000 so not bad and steady 40 hours, but after I started, I almost quit, but told myself give it some time because of my past wanting to try something stable.
I think the freedom, flexibility and opportunity to make more money because I can work as hard and as long as I want to, plus I have the experience, education and reputation that is needed in the industry...it's just a stressful job, and I can't say NO, so it's hard for me to find balance and happiness.
It's not a bad dillemma actually, I'm lucky to have a job and an opportunity to be self employed, it's just which one will make me happiest
Sorry, I'm rambling on...
How so I switch to Q & A
We lost connection, I've been waiting to long, sorry
ok, there you are, sorry, lost you on the other site
I will get back to you this evening if that's ok
My name is XXXXX XXXXX is really patience? that's cute and no I'm not trying to hit on you because I'm going through a crisis. No question, my confidence is at an all time low, when I was my own boss I was much more confident and when kids were home. My gf is a good person and don't know why she has stayed with me we don't live togehter, but spend most of our time together. I play drums in a praise band at church and have lots of guy friends and colleagues I share with. That's my problem I often rely on other peoples opinions then trusting my own. I'm sure I'm depressed. I seem to tear up over silly things I never used to, sounds feminine. I just don't know if I should go back to my own business with freedom or stay in this employee situation, the lack of stress is great, but lack of freedom and flexibility is hard also.
