A job where you get a steady pay-check every week or month. Not a job were you are scrambling around daily hoping that somebody might hire you.
Security is an illusion. Just ask those who were laid off in the latest downturn.

Sure, working for yourself can mean irregular income, periods of feast or famine, work intruding on your personal life, and a lot of scrambling for business. It takes a particular kind of personality to deal with that & it's not for everyone. Clearly it wouldn't be for you. BUT - it may be for your wife. She may have the temperament to deal with that.

Just's an option.

Thank you!

My favorite line from your post: "Security is an illusion." Excellent point!
