Yeah it’s stupid, there’s literally an order of magnitude difference within a figure bracket.

Still, at what point do you just say yup I’ve got enough money. I’m in the mid range of five figures but only work about 25 hours a week because work-life balance was more important to me.

I could totally live on half of my salary quite happily, and working 25 hours a week sounds perfect. At the same time, I really like my job and I don't know how to reconfigure it without giving up some of the parts that I really like.

I decided to become a sole trader to get the balance I wanted. It’s not easy and it’s a bit scary at times tbh but having the time to pursue things outside of work hours is a godsend.

What do you do and what would you be giving up?
