I'm a retread. I was self-employed for several successful years and then left to join the technology boom as a technologist. I thought 'more is better' and went in search of a big corporate salary. I am a technical analyst and have had a good career but now I am unhappy at my job and will probably get laid off soon. I am seriously considering leaving my tech job to return back to making jewelry and working for myself again. I already have a business plan and a willing partner to help me get started. I am mustering up the courage to leave my job. So more to come later!
