The scary choice...to go full time or not! I took a the plunge in May of this year and haven't looked back!Yes it was scary and yes I had a back up plan just in case n didn't work but it was the best thing I have ever done. I don't earn as much as I did before but I am a much happier person and I get to spend much more time with my family.
