Re: Turning down high paying job. Am I crazy?
I think you are making the right choice. I'm currently making $20,000 a year less than I was last year. I lost my job due to some bizarre events. I then started my own business doing something I love, and have never been happier. Sure, I intend to grow the business (and I already have another $15 K in contracts for next year) but if I don't I'll be pretty content anyway. Money isn't everything and at your stage of the game I would make the same decision.
