So my original plan was to pay off my student loans and then "retire" to an eBay only income. The original goal was the end of this year. My wife did not like my plan, as is normal of most of my plans. Lol.
We agreed that I would continue employment at my current "real" job until the house is paid off. The current goal, my "Ferrari Goal", is March 2018.
Plan C (AKA - Back to Plan A)
However, as sudden change of events at my workplace has been causing me great stress and grief, every day. I make good money and have good benefits, but all that is not worth the sheer hatred I have for my tasks. I can make just as much by "retiring" and adding only half the working hours to my eBay endeavor. I have developed a spread sheet (conservatively) to show her that I can make more money with only eBay, by using just 75% of the combined hours of both jobs. It uses numbers based on the last 24 months of sales, not even considering projected growth based on the last 6 months. The spreadsheet goes home with me tonight......wish me luck!
