Was wondering if some on the boards with experience can help me. Basically, I've been my own boss trading on my own for several years with a lot of success and obviously a ton of personal freedom. I take vacations when I want, and work whatever hours I want. I'm now being given the opportunity to take a potentially very lucrative position, but it will take me back to being a 9-5er (maybe 9-9er) in a very corporate environment. Dress, work hours, allotted vacation time, etc. How difficult a transition is this? I guess it's different for everone, but I'm interested in some opinions. I'm someone who loves my freedom and enjoy vacationing frequently. The trade-off is I can make a shi*load of $ if this position works out. I'm wondering if i should go for it, or am I gonna hate going back to the corporate grind so much that it's not even worth it. Also, I wouldn't feel right "trying it out" for a few months and quitting, I'd pretty much stick with it for at least a couple years since i wouldn't feel right leaving until I made the company a lot of $ or was completely hating my life. Serious replies, please. Thanks. How bad is it to go back to the grind, once you've been out for so long?
