Best Job I've Every Had

I just spent four hours on bookkeeping for the family business.  When we started, over 23 years ago, it took me 6-8 hours a week to manage the books.  Now it takes 15-20 hours. But, truth is, managing the books on my own, from a home office, is the best job I've ever had.  I love setting my own hours and answering to no one but myself.

Ideally we would like to some day sell the business.  However, I can't see us ever being able to completely retire as long as we're able-bodied.  I'm hoping, when the time comes, I can find, or create, a similar part-time situation.  For sure, it will not be watching babies or toddlers!
