That's the decision I am tasked with at the moment. I lost my job after 20+ years at a place. Lost everything in the process. I decided that I was going into business for myself. I have spent the last year and a half in hell building my company. Money has been and is tight. Things are finally starting to break though. I see light at the end of the tunnel once more. I had a recruiter call and he wants me to take a C-Level position with a local company 100K +. I know what I want to do, I want to continue my efforts, I want to build my company. I'm not sure I could work for someone else. Have any of you been in this position? I feel I have to follow my vision and dream, I also feel I have an obligation to my family to provide more than I have been. I have no one else to talk with this about. My in-laws are great but do not understand my business. They would kill me if they knew I was passing this job by. My wife is really awesome, she will stand by me no matter what. I guess I just need to get this out there. I'm not getting any younger, the safe thing seems... well safe. I am not and have never been the type of person to seek the "safe" solution though.
