Good insights. Maybe time to dream bigger, founder/co-founder perhaps. Cause working for a boss can suck. Or worse, create a new 100M product and simply pull salary, no rotalties (my fulltime situation).

I went from contracting for 10 years then chose stability (fulltime) during my son's early years. He graduates high school in less than 2 years so and I look forward to quitting the fulltime nonsense and focusing on my entrepreneur path again.

Guess my point is, corporate fulltime simply sucks. Keep consulting if you can.

I've always moonlighted and continue to do that. I have done ~14 startups and have one acquisition. Its hard to take chances with the need for insurance in the US, but I plan on some form of self-employment in the future. Thanks for your advice.
