Yeah. There is that. I forgot about that aspect. I forgot how depressing it can be having most of the fruits of your labors going toward the enrichment of a boss or exec or some other higher up. I may not be getting "rich" doing what I do (haunting thrift stores, yard sales, and public auctions for a wide variety of things to resell on the 'bay and other sites), but I make enough to pay my bills and other living expenses, and stash away a bit each month for a rainy day.
It is well worth it to me to be able to do my thing, set my own schedule, and for the most part, be answerable to no one except myself. Now, time to shut down all time wasting Firefox tabs and get to work. These goods aren't going to photoshoot and write themselves up.
