    I was 19 when I went to the Navy. It wasnít for me but it taught me some very valuable lessons and values like tidiness, personal responsibility, appreciation for being a civilian and pride in whatever I do.

    Granted I was just a kid but I was pretty much a dumbass before I went. I didnít appreciate anything and didnít have much in the way of drive. Something about boot camp just knocked something loose in my brain and my priorities have been different ever since.

    I came back home and got involved in growing what was a new family business at the time but I wouldnít have been successful had I not had that experience before hand.

    The military has a good way of straightening out wayward kids I have to say. I can relate as my youngest cousin went to Army bootcamp years ago and when he came back I saw a changed young man as he used to be cocky and brash then became a more thoughtful less impulsive person. Nowadays runs a successful family business.

    For me going off to college was a life changer. Learned new things and became more independent as I was the first in my family to ever attend a college.

    Just moving out at 22, getting married and having a new house built (back in 1989).
    Wife and I still basically doing the same stuff 30+ years later. Not a fan of change I guess.

    I was 41 it turned out to be a great decision for my career, life is full of changes and sometimes your provision and plan are not where you think they are.

    I'm about to make one at 39.

    Tired of working for someone else. Tired of hourly pay. I make good money and my benefits are very very good but I think I can do better.

    Me and a friend are going to try and get something up and going on our own. I've been back and forth in my mind for a few years now. I'm comfortable where I'm at. It's safe. I keep worrying about benefits.mainly medical but I'm going to make the jump.

    Ill be able to handle failure better than always wondering if I could have done something more in life for myself and family.

    It's scary. I'm nervous.

    My friend has his general contractors license so that gets us into anything commercial or residential.
    I can't say I'm a master carpenter but I know enough that i can make more money going at things on my on instead of punching a clock and busting my ass so people above me make more in there bonuses than I make for a check.

    They have been dangling a big pay raise in my face for months and this past week I've just had enough. It's stupid to depend on someone , at least for me, to put my trust in someone else when it comes to wanting something better when I have a chance to make things happen on my own.

    I am afraid though.

    So long as you feel good about your ability to accrue a backlog of work and you have your costs in check you should be good.

    Number one thing I see when people make the transition to self-employment is they see money coming in and they think itís all profit, and they spend it. Obviously itís not that simple. Youíll have self-employment taxes thatíll need to be paid annually and if youíre going to have people on your payroll youíll need WC insurance, which can cost you big come renewal time, after they audit your payroll.

    The bigger the enterprise the more complicated it gets. But like you said, if youíve got the ambition and the technical and marketing skills, youíre sacrificing dollars for security.

    Good luck man.

    I was 15 when I got my first serious job. Soon I flew to another country as part of it and gained a lot of experience not only professionally, but also as a person. My views, my understanding of many things changed. I donít know how my life would have turned out if I hadnít come to that company then.

    Which time? I've had five major career changes. Three by choice. Two because I saw the writing on the wall and jumped ship early. I love new challenges. Change is exciting. I read the book, Who Moved My Cheese years ago and it changed my perspective.

    Joined the Army at 18.

    Totally altered my trajectory in many many good ways.

    Although I hated it while I was in... but most soldiers bitch.

    Talk about getting out (then you see half of them re-up). Lol

    How old were you when you made a major life change.

    Never wanted kids, thought it would be the end of me. My way of life was not compatible with being a dad, not in the slightest. Ended up getting my wife pregnant by accident, certainly wasnít trying. I was so freaked out. Within those 9 months I got my shit together about 80%. After having son and realizing how much he meant to me and how much being a good father for him meant to me I got my the rest of my shit together 100%, over the next few months of him being born.

    Iíve never felt so in control of my life, my actions and my future. Iím proud of the change I made. Most people donít make it out alive (opiate addiction) and Iíve left it very far behind. Iím so focused on doing this right. Even fucking with gear sits heavy with me because I know Iím taking a big risk doing so. A risk that could potentially shake up my family life badlyÖI already made my decision though and this is going to be a part of my life until I die, so I am being as careful as possible moving forward with this.
