I saw a previous thread about whether or not people found it worth the money, as in $/hour, running their own business. My question goes out to those who are freelancing or consulting, and I wonder if there is a dollar value you place on being able to manage your own time. I have family friends, one a teacher, the other a freelance architect. Last summer, my family and I were able to use their vacation home because they took a MONTH to go on a family camping/rafting trip on the Colorado river. My wife and I look at them with envy, contemplating having careers that allow us to manage our time this way. Does anyone out there find great value in the freedom of being your own boss, and would you trade it for a 9-5 (or 7-7, like many of us), working under supervision?
