I proposed to my two associates that they buy me out in 5 years, may me off over time, and keep me on as an employee to preserve the client base and consult from afar. It appears likely that they will accept.
This is huge - an opportunity to live a peaceful life by 51 with my wife, cars and dogs in a beautiful place. We have our eye on Colorado, and my wife likes this house.
It won’t be there of course when we are ready to buy, but I am trying to put this future together for us. I am sure going to try and pull this off.
