RECENTLY ON TOL:

I am changing careers after owning my own business for 25 years. People that know me, totally associate me with my former career.
As I am trying to transistion into a new career, while keeping my business open on a smaller scale, I am having a hard time getting people to think of me in terms of other than my former business.
My former business seems very appealing to people and they can't believe I would transistion out of it, while they would dream of getting into it. I have just grown weary of working in a labor of love for very little money.
There needs to be a balance between career goals and personal life, or your career can swallow you up and you may never break that bind.
