A little background.... I am an engineer in Silicon Valley making about 150-160k per year. I've been in this line for about 10 years. I am considering a switch to trading options full time because wife wants more money (and I am pretty bored with my job as well ) The questions .. 1. Should I even consider it or suck it up and just get on with life? I can start with about 100k. 2. How to handle a wife who is not happy with the money you make?
