My sense is that it is
generally easier for a self-employed professional to do so, since they appear to have
more control over their hours. Perhaps that's also possible for software techies. Any
hints or success stories out there from those who have successfully negotiated their way
from full-time to part-time jobs while working for fairly traditional organizations?


I would love to RE, but in reality, I don't think I'll ever retire. When I look at a few things on the RE board, like needing $360K for $1k/month income, I get overwhelmed. It'll never happen for me.

So I have my own repair business and I'm able to work the hours I want. Today I've decided to relax and not work. Of course I work around how busy my call load demands, but it is nice that I do call the shots.

My field is something I enjoy and I'm good at. I don't mind working a few hours a day and being able to golf, relax as I so choose.
