So, you don't have clients or customers?

Married? If so, in denial?

My clients listen to my experienced words. My wife and I are on the same plane.
Anything else?

Out of curiosity, what kind of business are you in?

I spent 10 years working for a small(sub 30 people) employee owned company. We built gokarts, bumper boats, and batting cages for the amusement industry. We also purchased a leaf spring manufacturing company at the end of 2017. I was management and a fiduciary of the company. I got tired of the crazy hours, tons of personal liability, and ridiculous amount of stress. The company president and I had blow out arguments about once a months since he worked from 1pm-6pm and had no idea what went on during the day and I worked from daylight to dark covering many aspects of the company. I escaped to a regular 9-5 as a field service tech. I mostly work by myself. I can make my own hours as long as I am getting my jobs done in a timely manner and putting in 8 a day. It was a pay cut but I am much happier.

Normal people just don't understand how hard business owners really work. My dad has always owned his own business doing taxes. He has worked 18 hours days Jan through April, and still works ridiculous hours the rest of the year. He keeps trying to get me to work for him with the money he earns, but sorry, nothing is worth destroying your life over. He single handedly made me never ever want to own my own business.

That is my dream. Unfortunately there isn't a racing industry where I currently live. My wife and I are moving to NC in a year or two and I will be searching for something automotive related. Can't wait. I would take a pay cut to work in the racing industry (what I love) no questions asked.

This thread is very telling about the demographics of this car. I notice a distinctive lack of people from the labor sector stating they want "better" jobs here. No truck drivers, garbage men, ditch diggers, factory workers, janitors, farm workers, etc. buy this car? Is it just IT, engineers, or other tech types that buy it? Do the people complaining about their jobs not understand that they hold somebody else's dream position that in simply not attainable?
Sure it is wonderful to dream about the perfect job for you and it is great to strive for it but for most those dream jobs will just never ever come around. Even when they do you may find that your dream job all of a sudden just turns into a job once you have it so you need to be careful what you ask for.

I wouldn't be surprised if the only dream job for many people is "lottery recipient." Even then, some would want more for less effort.
