“Live the life you love.” As seen in Estes Park, Colorado, many moons ago.
“There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.”

“All of us have to learn how to invent our lives, make them up, imagine them. We need to be taught these skills; we need guides to show us how. If we don’t, our lives get made up for us by other people.” —Ursula K. Le Guin, The Wave in the Mind (Talks and Essays on the Writer, the Reader, and Imagination), 2004.
This is a page from my book, “How I Sold My Business: A Personal Diary”
I gave my "decision" to sell my business, or at least my portion of the business, a week to settle down, weigh the pros and cons, and also look at the financial aspects of the decision.
Most importantly, financially, I won't be able to retire if I sell the company, even at $12,000 per share. Just buying a nice home in a nice area in my hometown will take $300K or more. So this is clearly not a "Sell and retire" move.
