I've told several people that I'm collecting one more annual bonus (for my work ending 12/31/21 and paid in mid Feb) and then I'm quitting.

The amount and position of people I've told this pretty much locks me in to following through. Super pro bread winner wife is on board.

I'm about to start training employee #1 for the guitar stuff. That'll be interesting.

(He won't really be an employee, more like casual help.)

good luck,I am the worse trainer possible.I assume the trainee is more competent than I give them credit for.Usually have someone else train new staff
Which Btw is impossible to find now

Plan is to rip off one client (who is one of the people I've told and has assured me he's on board). That's 1/10 - 1/7 my work but by cutting out the firm (and discounting my rate for him) will be 1/4 - 1/2 my current income.... after that maybe work some contract gigs to fill the time and income gap if necessary but ultimately be domestic dad and see if I can develop a couple other clients without really trying (not doing a website or anything).

I also suck at training people.

“You don’t get along well with your co-workers at the office but you’re one of the smartest guys we have so we’ve decided to give you a $20,000 raise and you can work from home indefinitely.”
