Been in the business for almost 20 years but on my own as my own trader for 6 months and am so happy. I would rather make less doing this than dealing with those awful backstabbing office politics where nobody is really your friend. I just read an article on Monster.com and I can honestly say, I hope I NEVER have to go back to working for someone else. I was so miserable and the life had been taken out of me. Now, I look forward to each day and am starting to reclaim my life. Corporate World really bites. I dear anyone to tell me they have a corporate job that they truly love and can't wait to get up in the morning for.
