After leaving the military I worked for about 3 years for companies, but I knew one thing, I wanted to be my own boss. I succeeded and never been happier. Being your own boss gives you true freedom in life. Was able to pack the bags when I was still in my 30's and move to my wife's country and there too we open our own business. Now, we really should be retired these days, but we work mainly to have something to do and of course to bring in a little bread I always thought when I was working for a company, why am I making this (person.company) money and I make little money. I really hated that feeling.
