I am in my thirties, married with 2 young children and looking to find a business that my wife and I can run from home and become full-time parents rather than working for a living for someone else!
My wife is a full-time mum as she wanted to spend as much time with our children as possible. This has meant a huge pay cut as she is no longer bringing in any money. Although she is not 'working' she has a full-time job as a mum; which is a priceless opportunity that she is doing a phenomenal job with. I cannot fault a single thing she has done with our children, they are an absolute credit to her and it's a role I would struggle to manage full-time; send me somewhere to get shot at any day of the week :-)
I am currently in the British Armed Forces and as such I have times when I am forced to go away, work silly hours or random shifts. To that end, it is now beginning to lose its novelty and family is now my main focus. As things stand I am caught in the 'pension trap' I have just 4 yrs to go before I can retire on a full pension from the day I leave. If I leave before 4 yrs then I don't get my pension until I am 67!
Both my wife and I have no desire to work for someone else again and are both actively looking to find a business that we can be involved in that will maximise our flexibility so we can spend as much time as possible with our children. Online seems like the ideal opportunity; we both have some really niche skill sets and experience that we can capitalise on, hence us joining WA.
So the very short version of our plan? To have a self sustaining business that will provide us enough income when I retire from the military so that we can enjoy our time with our children. Only time will tell and we will see what happens.
Please do follow me on WA and also have a look at my website www.SurvivorChap.com and leave any comments you have, good or bad.
If you are active on social media then please add me (links under my profile picture) and we can connect and develop both of our businesses together.
