I'd rather be gone a lot and make more money. I'm a greedy ####### though. Plus, I want to be able to provide my family a good quality of life, even if that means I'm not necessarily there to enjoy it.Would you rather be gone a lot and make the most money possible or be home the most and make a decent salary? Say you have a wife and kids.
Welcome to JC.I think it's better to work your butt off and then retire early. That way you can make a ton of money before you have to worry about sending kids to college or whatever.
Very true, but, if it was between making sure my family had plenty of money and never had to worry about anything, or spending everyday with them and struggling through life and not being very happy, I would prefer to be out making money. And if you died tomorrow, it really wouldn't matter what you did because someone would complain either way. You would either be the person who didn't try hard enough and left their family in a hole or the person who didn't spend enough time with their family.If you died tomorrow would you rather have spent more time at work making money or more time at home with your wife and kids?
Guarantee that'll change when your baby is born...it was hard to leave my wife & son, but when my daughter was born in September it became twice as hard.I'd rather be gone a lot and make more money.
