Not everyone wants to get rich. Life is too short to be attached to a ball and chain, no matter how attractively wrapped. I recently left a job that paid very well at a company I'd been with for almost 25 years - best thing I've done lately.
No more pantyhose, getting up at dawn for a 40-mile drive in heavy traffic, meeting deadlines, dealing with egos, blabbity blah blah. Living that life meant my kid ate a lot of junk for dinner because I was too tired to make much of an effort each night, barked at her instead of talking to her, spent the entire weekend doing housework when I wasn't doing even more "work" work at home. Wow, I am so much nicer to be around now.
