I think working for yourself is the best. You have freedom.
Not as much as you'd think, especially when you start having employees
I'd like to know what's the biggest challenge you face when you're your own boss.
It's a constant dance of expansion and production. You have to know when to get more employees, equipment, etc without blowing your liquid capital, but still have what you need to meet your contracts and jobs. It's a constant damned if you do damned if you don't situation that can only be managed through trail and error
I see, it's far more challenging than how most people think.
Would you like to tell what your job was?
Civil engineer for SoCal city. I started right out of grad school as a Junior Engineer (a job title I always hated) and eventually rose to Principle Engineer, which is the supervisor of all engineering staff, reporting directly to the City Engineer or to the Public Works Director (a visit his office was to avoided at all cost). I took an early retirement offer and left one year short of 30 years, missing out on a gold watch. It was a good career, but retirement in Florida on a generous pension is a hell of a lot better!

What is that amazing job?
Virtual event coordinator. Wine tastings, mixology classes. I do in person events too, but I support all events remotely from my home office.
