Money and business are great but my family time has decreased severely.
That's kind of what I figured would happen. Both my parents are self-employed, with separate businesses, and I know what it takes and the sacrifices one must make. It's a big commitment. The sales/following part I think I can manage, it's what I do for a living. If I can get our little company into some of the Fortune 500 companies that I have managed to, I bet I could get it done in the catering business, so long as I put the hours in (and had a product worth a crap...kind of an important detail).

Thanks for the feedback, that perspective is really helpful.
