Another thing: getting enormously wealthy selling your company for ten million or fifteen million dollars is obviously pretty freaking awesome, but having had a bit of money in the bank the past couple of years I have come to realize what I really wanted in life was a job I liked going to every day and people I like working with. Because if I did end up fabulously wealthy that's pretty much what I'd end up doing, so why not just do it now?
I've heard a lot of friends come to this realization in the past few years — instead of putting off those someday fantasies of how they'd like to live their lives, they just start doing the things they've always wanted to do. If you make it a priority in your life, it certainly is possible to live how you'd really want to.
For those of you thinking about starting or selling your business, there are some awesome resources around the web now, including Inc.com, VentureHacks, AxialMarket, BizBuySell.com, etc.
